Why choose Aberlour & Craigellachie Pre-School Nursery

We provide a secure, stimulating and nurturing environment for children as they learn, play and grow together.

All children aged from 2 to 5 years are welcome to our term time nursery sessions. Some 2 year old and most 3 to 5 year old children are entitled to government funded Early Education places.

Located within Aberlour Primary School in a spacious light and airy room. We use the schools facilities and resources. Such as the school library and the hall for our P.E. sessions which are coached by a British Gymnastic, Pre School Gymnastic and Scottish Football Association Coach. We frequently join the older school children to take part in shared topics and activities. Being involved in extracurricular activates is paramount to our Pre School. Children will get the chance to take part in swimming, use the local climbing wall and explore our local community, woods and the Speyside Way. 


Outside we have two secure soft floored play areas and access to the two school playgrounds along with the grassed field and the fenced school garden where children can build dens and explore for bugs or make mud pies! Our outside areas are used and enjoyed all year round.

We pride ourselves in being able to offer children individual attention as we have a high ratio of adults to children. Highly qualified and experienced staff will assume responsibility within the setting for your individual child’s needs and development.

To ensure that we support our children in reaching their full potential we offer a curriculum based on learning through play and follow Scotland’s Pre Birth to 3 and Together We Can Curriculum along with The Curriculum for Excellence for 3 to 5 year old children.
