About the nursery

Clarence House Nursery, set in the leafy West End of Glasgow, has indoor and outdoor facilities. Shirley Hexley, the nursery owner and manager, has been providing wraparound childcare since 1998 for 0-5 year olds.

Clarence House has an excellent reputation for having a calm and nurturing environment that encourages children to be independent, develop social skills and explore new experiences.

Staff are committed to understanding the individual needs of each child and work closely with parents to consolidate learning and help each child reach their full potential.

Clarence House is a small nursery and recent comments from parents have included “higglety pigglety” and “quirky”. Most visitors comment on the nice feeling they get when they come in. Because of the small size of the nursery it feels homely and welcoming. Children are not regulary moved about from room to room and this allows relationships to develop into meaningful and positive friendships that can last through to school. And in the words of one of the children “we are a happy nursery”.

Some of our strengths are :

  • Our highly qualified and experienced staff follow Pre-Birth to Three and the Curriculum for Excellence which provides a framework for learning and supports all children well as they make the transition into school.
  • We offer a broad range of indoor and outdoor activities with a focus on Health and Wellbeing, Literacy and Numeracy.
  • There are also opportunities for children to explore areas such as Science and Technology, Expressive Arts and Social Studies.
  • A daily exercise programme which establishes an introduction to the importance of health, and we also have visits from a football coach during school term time.

Fees include a hot cooked meal at lunchtime, snacks, drinks, external specialists, events and outings.

Partnership with Glasgow City Council offers funding for all 3-5 year olds.
