Within Little Scallywags we have a vision of creating a safe, secure and stimulating enviroment in which we can nurture your child and support them in their early year's development. We know that the early years are such an important time in your child's life and as such we aim to provide a high quality of care from a professional and caring team. The values we have are to be honest and open, to treat everyone with fairness and compassion and to create an enviroment of mutual trust and respect.
Our purpose is to offer a service where we can provide a stimulating learning enviroment in which children can develop and grow into responsible citizens, effective contributors, confident individuals and successful learners.
We offer professional childcare for children aged 0-12 years. Little Scallywags nursery for children from 0-5 years encourages all aspects of indoor and outdoor play. We also provide afterschool care and holiday clubs for children up to the age of 12. We pride ourselves on being flexible to suit different family needs.
Little Scallywags Nursery are now in partnership with Perth and Kinross Council and as from August 2014 we will be offering council funded sessions for preschool and ante preschool children.
We provide a bright, safe and homely environment for children to express themselves through play. We have recently completed our extension and outdoor play area and also transformed the existing areas to make exciting and stimulating areas for all our age groups. We also use our outdoor space as another learning area.
Our After School Club for children aged 5-12 is available in term time and we can pick up children from local Crieff schools and Madderty. The sessions include homework/instruments, outdoor play, local parks, creative/art sessions, baking, swimming at Crieff Hydro, crazy golf, tennis, den building, etc. All activities are child led.
We also provide a Holiday Club throughout all school holidays and inservice days. There will be a programme displayed within the nursery so please don't hesitate to call or pop in to have a look. Our Holiday Club is open to all children on a very flexible basis.
We like to get the children outside in the fresh air as much as possible and
use our nursery garden daily and our wide range of activities include indoor/outdoor learning experiences, trips to our very own wild garden, Auchengarrich Wildlife Centre, nature walks and use of local parks and the library. We also include activites such as cooking, crafts, music, swimming, imaginative play, soft play at Crieff Hydro, special events and much more. We have our very own Scallywags bus fully equipped with car seats for every age group to allow us freedom for outings.
