The fees given here below are per term. They include the funding deduction from South Ayrshire Council, insurance and snacks.
The Nurseries are open between 8.50am and 4.00pm. Wrap around care from 8.15 to 8.50am and 4.00 to 5.30pm is also available at an additional cost.
There are clothing requirements for children in both Nurseries. For children attending the Outdoor Nursery, clothing is especially important as the children need to be both warm and comfortable.
Children learn by having fun and taking part in a variety of activities – including messy ones!
Healthy eating is encouraged in the Nurseries. Children are provided with a healthy snack every day and a choice of milk or water is provided free of charge. Fresh fruit is always available.
Children staying for the extended care facility can either have a school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home. An afternoon snack is also provided.

As a registered centre, our Nurseries are inspected regularly by the Care Inspectorate and are included in a joint Care Inspectorate/HMIE programme. Parents are always fully apprised as to the outcome of these inspections.
All Nursery staff undergo regular Child Protection Training. As a matter of course, they provide support to children in their care and have a vital role to help protect them from harm. This is achieved by:
The school has a designated Child Protection Co-ordinator, Mrs Natalie O’Connell.
Wellington School is committed to ensuring that no child is subject to discrimination. Every child isencouraged to develop positive attitudes towards others whose gender, language, religion or culture is different from their own. Any parent who wishes their child to be absent from school to celebrate a religious event during term time will be fully supported by the school.
