Westercraigs Nursery School
Westercraigs Nursery School is located within the Dennistoun area of Glasgow and works with up to 64 pre school children in portacabin accommodation. The nursery provides a service across a wide demographic group, and it is clear that staff, children and families are very involved in a huge range of activities, both in their local community and wider afield, geared towards positive citizenship, positive environmental action, health and wellbeing.
The garden areas are hives of activity, including wildflower areas, sandpits, potato growing, herb and vegetable beds, a den, a ‘Hagrid’s House’ which Santa visits each year.
Children and staff are encouraged to be outside as much as possible, and the garden is enjoyed by children as a well utilised outdoor classroom space.
