Childcare Scotland


A Little Bit of History


Our first nursery was set up in 1989.  This was a 30 place nursery providing care for children aged between 6 weeks and 5 years, but it soon became apparent that there was a growing need for a more diverse form of childcare.  In February 1994 we expanded, opening our second nursery in Skelmorlie.  Our Preparatory school was a huge success and both Kindergarten and an Out of School Care service followed.


Further expansion using the recognized successful formula saw the opening of our Irvine nursery in July 1996, our Kilmarnock nursery in November of that year, followed by our take-over of Glasgow Caledonian University nursery in June 1998.  The year 2003 was a busy time with the renovation of Melville House Nursery in central Edinburgh, the purchase of an existing purpose build facility in Falkirk and our own new purpose built centre in Aberdeen.  2004 saw the renovation of the former Burnside Children’s Home facility in Irvine with 2005 the relocation of our Skelmorlie centre to nearby Largs. In December 2006 we were awarded the contract to provide childcare facilities for Glasgow’s Strathclyde University. In March 2007 we successfully tendered for Glasgow University Nursery.
