With a focus on outdoor learning our nursery is perfectly located; surrounded by woodland areas, forests and rivers. Find us here.
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. We pride ourselves on offering children a wide range of activities and all of our children have access to outdoor play areas offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning experiences across all areas of the curriculum.
Our nursery has been an established and respected Centre for Early Year's Care in Dunblane for over a decade and has developed a strong reputation for delivering quality and meeting the needs of individual children and their families.
We accept all childcare vouchers and offer 3-5 year old funding. Our spaces can fill up fast so we do recommend you enquire as early as possible to ensure you get the sessions and start date you require.

“Great management with motivated staff. They also go beyond expectations to put on parent /children open evenings/events - such as the Xmas party and campfire night.” – D.K, Day Nurseries Review
“My three year old has been attending for 1.5 years now and has positively flourished as a direct result. Her speech, cognition, reasoning are excellent - all fantastic foundational skills. The staff are very caring, skilled, loving and are all absolutely excellent. My older child also goes to after school and she loves it just as much as her little sister. I honestly cannot praise the staff enough - best nursery in Scotland as far as I am concerned!” -Veronica, Day Nurseries Review
“Very happy with our two wee boys at Dunblane Nature Kindergarten. They seem to really love it. The staff are great, they all work really hard to form bonds with the kids.” – Sally, Day Nurseries Review
