A Day in the Life of Kelvinside
At Kelvinside Kindergarten we offer a warm, homely and stimulating environment, with our renovated house we can offer small numbered playrooms with experienced and hard working staff, some of which have been working at our nursery for over 11 years. Having a small staff turn over at our nursery allows us to make sure that our children have continuity on a daily basis, this is also done through our key workers scheme and gives a positive view of our nursery to returning parents who often bring younger brothers and sisters. All of these things allow our staff and management to build great relationships with all our parents and guardians, we even have some of our own staffs children at our nursery.
We offer a wide range of play experiences relevant to all ages and stages of development. We recognize all individual children’s learning needs through Pre Birth to Three, Curriculum for Excellence and GIRFEC. We also have staff on sight that are trained in supporting children who have additional learning needs and have a speech and language therapist that works within the company and is employed by Bertram nursery group. Situated in the heart of Glasgow we are lucky enough to have some great landmarks nearby that our staff and children are able to explore, such as our botanic gardens and the Hillhead library where our younger children go on a Monday morning for their Bounce and Rhyme classes. We have a weekly music class for all our children (Wed AM under 3s) and (Tue PM over 3s) and our A Star sports couch who provides a range of activities for our preschool children on a Wednesday afternoon.
At Kelvinside, we understand that children’s development in speech and language is essential to their ability to communicate and learn, reaching their full potential. That is why we have our own company Speech and Language Therapist who visits our setting to help us identify any issues at the earliest stages and intervene at the best time for your child. This development is unique to the Bertram Nursery Group and helps us to provide the best care possible for your children.
