The Nursery


Wellington School’s Nursery welcomes boys and girls from the age of three. Run in partnership with South Ayrshire Council, the Nursery provides a stimulating and dynamic environment where emphasis is placed on the individual. Children receive specialist teaching in a number of subjects and the highly experienced staff ensure that children progress to the next stage of their development as happy, curious, fulfilled and confident learners.

Located in the Junior School (Westfield Road), the Indoor Nursery offers a wide range of educational experiences for children. Meanwhile, the Outdoor Nursery is based in woodland at Doonside (Alloway). Through play, children are encouraged to develop the concentration and ability to use language effectively by observing, creating, experimenting, questioning and discussion – all of which is vital for future development.

Our Outdoor Nursery is set in beautiful privately owned woodland. Here the children experience the wonders of nature. With the turn of each season, the environment is ever changing and stimulating. We teach the children to appreciate the trees, plants and creatures that surround us. They learn how to stay safe around a fire and to use tools correctly and safely. The children also lead their own learning in taking risks, by tree climbing and using the natural resources for building dens and using their imagination. A visit to the woods is time taken away from a world full of technology exploring our fantastic natural setting.
