Our Nursery

Cove Bay Kindergarten has been an established and trusted centre  for early education for 20 years. Our nursery provides stimulating and inspiring childcare for children from birth to 5 years.

Cove Bay Kindergarten is housed in a former residential property with an extension to the rear of the building creating a large but homely nursery setting.  Our nursery is located in the heart of the village of Cove Bay, Aberdeen. Our central location provides us with easy access to main routes and convenient links to public transport services, and our location in a residential area allows for safe and easy drop off and collection with ample street parking.

We aim to encourage the development of children through play, interaction, creativity and physical activity in a warm and nurturing environment. Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence. Each playroom has access to outdoor play areas offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning opportunities across all areas of the curriculum. Our 3 large outdoor play areas allow children to get fresh air and have lots of fun.

"It's great to see the positive outcomes for children at Cove Bay Kindergarten that come about from working so well as a team. The nursery for me is very much an extension of my family, I suppose it's a bit like my baby that I am nurturing to it's full potential."
