Welcome to Adelphi Nursery’s Website

Dear Parents/Carers,
The team and I would like to give a brief overview of what we can offer your child at Adelphi Nursery!
We are a Glasgow City Council Early Learning and Childcare Establishment and can offer full days or part days, Term Time or Full Year Childcare options, to meet your childcare needs.
We are fortunate to be based with easy access and parking for drop off and pick up and just across from Glasgow Green and have outdoor play areas for each of our Playrooms.
We know that looking for a nursery is a big task and we are pleased that you are looking at the possibility of sending your child to Adelphi Nursery.
We offer a nurturing environment and we are committed to outdoor learning and offer daily outdoor play experiences and learning opportunities for your child.  All our Child Development Officers are qualified and undertake continuous development in Early Years to ensure we give a great service to you and your child.
Here at Adelphi nursery, we have created a warm and caring environment which supports and develops our attachment led childcare provision. We recognise that the year 0 to 5 years are most important years of a child’s life.  Here at Adelphi Nursery we strive to ensure that our 2 to 5 years are provided with the best possible experiences in our 2-3 or 3-5 Playrooms.
At Adelphi Nursery we understand the importance of working with our families to provide consistency for each child’s individual routines/needs and understand the challenges you face.  Each Child at Adelphi Nursery has their own Keyworker and we make the use of various Council approved software apps to share your child’s knowledge and experiences with their parent/carers.
Here is a link to our latest Newsletter to give you a flavour of the types of activities your child would be involved in, should you apply for a place with us;

We look forward welcoming you and your child to our Nursery!
