Haugh Of Urr Nursery Rural nursery

Haugh of Urr Nursery is a small, rural nursery delivering pre-school education and care to children aged between 3 years and 5 years and now eligible 2 year olds. We serve the immediate community of the Haugh of Urr village and beyond. Many families choose to travel significant distances to come to us, enjoying the benefits of a smaller nursery, surrounded by countryside, with lots of opportunities for outdoor learning. We are very well supported by our neighbouring school and local community in all that we do. We are different from other nurseries in that, although we have a manager, we do also have a management committee made up of parents and carers of children who attend. This means that as a parent or carer, you can have more say about how the nursery is run
