If your child was born from 1 March 2014 to 28 February 2015 they can start primary school in August 2019 and you must register them during registration week.
Most schools have open days this Wednesday 31st October with registration taking place w/c 5th November. There are some useful links for you below (‘read more’ for app users)
Please note that even if you are thinking of deferring your child next year you must still register them at your chosen school.
If you have any questions about registering your child please do not hesitate to give your nursery manager a call.
We are excited to announce that Maureen Crandles, our owner and director, will be taking part in a feature on Friday morning on BBC Radio Scotland.
Maureen will be talking to the host on gender stereotypes and how we combat them in our nurseries.
Tune in at 11.10am, it is sure to be a great discussion!

Our Employee of the month, staff incentive focus for August will be on Room Area Planning. The criteria for this are as follows:
Area planning is a tool used by practitioners to develop areas in each room.
This provides children with challenging and stimulating learning experiences.
Please feel free to look at these sheets on the planning boards outside each room and feedback would be much appreciated.
Hi my name is Megan Paterson and I love working with children.
I was a children’s football coach before starting at Doune Terrace Nursery.
I am really looking forward to having lots of fun with all the children in the pre school room and watching them grow.
Hi my name is Hannah. I recently left school to persue a career in childcare.
I am a fun, loving and enthusiastic individual who loves dancing and caring for children.
I like to watch children grow and develop in their own ways.
I am really looking forward to meeting the babies and their families.
