Little Learners' Nursery - Dunstaffnage by Oban

Little Learners Nursery was crowned Best Independent Nursery in Scotland and is located in a fairy-tale setting just minutes from the beach, forest and castle, near the village of Dunbeg, just a few minutes north of Oban.

The nursery can accommodate 32 children from birth to 5 years at any one time and also provides work placements for Argyll College’s Childcare students and professional development opportunities through the University of the Highlands and Islands. We have good car parking facilities, a secure door entry system and 360º CCTV in operation.

The children spend part of every day exploring outside either on the beach, discovering our ‘Gruffalo-land’ in the forest or playing in the castle –a wonderful way to learn and develop their imaginations. In addition to this, 3-5 year olds receive two full days of outdoor fun per week, where the full curriculum is delivered in the marvellously scenic environment at Dunstaffnage.

Good nutrition in the early years is vital as it plays an important part in shaping later eating habits.  At Little Learners’ Nursery we will work in accordance with “Setting the Table”, the nutritional guidelines and food standard for the early year’s childcare providers in Scotland.
A two course chef prepared lunch is included in your child’s daily fee, plus healthy snacks and drinks. Parents are invited to join us for lunch on Fridays.

The nursery building was refurbished in Summer 2017 and allows us to provide an enhanced experience for our youngest children. We also have more space for wet weather and outdoor equipment to support our commitment to using the environment to provide our children with rich experiences and learning opportunities.
