Nursery & Nursery Plus

Two boys with hands in mixing bowlThe Nursery provides an ideal educational start for the youngest children at George Watson’s College in secure and stimulating surroundings within purpose-built accommodation. It has three pre-school classes with one of them offering a limited  number of morning only placements.

The associated care service, Nursery Plus, provides high quality childcare, play and development, before and after Nursery and during holidays. This flexible service allows parents to choose the care sessions they need, to complement the educational time provided by the Nursery.

Our Nursery and Nursery Plus facilities are located in two buildings – a dedicated wing of the Lower Primary and a self-contained section of New Myreside House, which is adjacent to the Lower Primary building. Both facilities include work and play areas, toilets, cloakrooms, kitchens for the preparation of healthy snacks and garden areas. The bright and airy classrooms contain computers and listening centres, as well as a wealth of other educational resources and books. Specialised apparatus, including challenging fixed play equipment, is available for all nursery children to use. The wider world of the school campus is used regularly for safe walks and visits.
