Castle Douglas Playgroup
We aim to provide a top quality service in a safe, happy and comfortable environment placing clear emphasis on the social and emotional welfare of each child as an individual. We will encourage children who attend to learn through play, whether this be structured or unstructured. The highly qualified staff wish to help your child reach his/her full potential through play and we do this by providing the necessary curriculum to allow them to meet this end. We welcome parental involvement and encourage this through every term as we believe parent partnership is paramount to a child's learning. We have funded places available for morning sessions, extended hours and afternoon sessions for two year olds. We have now been allocated an outdoor area to further your child's exploration through natural development..

Sparklers Castle Douglas
Sparklers Private Nursery and OSK's Club in Castle Douglas have a lot to offer both you and your children. We have a wide variety of services which are second to none. Our website gives you information about our Nursery and Out of School Club and other activities which are on offer to you. We have an ‘open door’ policy at all our Nurseries and parents/carers are welcome at any time, so please come in and see us for an informal chat and a look around to find out more.
We aim to make your child’s time with us as enjoyable as possible. They will be able to choose from the many activities on offer. Through play, your child is learning all the time. Each activity is an opportunity for children to develop their skills and feel a sense of achievement in what they do – whether it is fitting a jigsaw together or smothering a sheet of paper with glue or paint. We believe that encouragement and praise are important to stimulate the child to want to learn more and to develop a positive self-image. We recognise that parents are the prime carers and educators of their own children. Parents have a unique and specialised knowledge of their own child and your opinions and experience are much valued by us.
