Welcome to Ankerville Nurseries

Ankerville Nurseries are a family owned group of 3 nurseries based in Tain and Alness. We cater for children from 0-12 years on a full, part time and after school basis.

Ankerville nurseries aim to provide a service of the highest quality in a loving, caring environment which meets the needs of all children in Ankerville’s care. Allowing them to achieve their true potential whilst having lots of fun along the way.

Ankerville has a team of dedicated, highly qualified staff who work to carefully planned routines, which are geared to the appropriate age range.

We are passionate about providing a ‘child-centred’ learning environment offering a wide range of activities and experiences for your child based on nationally recognised educational and developmental standards.

Our latest inspections were published December 2009 and we were given a ‘Very Good’ rating. Copies can be found by visiting the Education Scotland  and Care Inspectorate , Enhanced Accreditation Alness, Enhanced Accreditation Tain websites.

All children follow the Curriculum for Excellence framework for further information on the 0-3 curriculum visit Learning and Teaching Scotland For children age 3-5 the Curriculum for excellence information can be found here.
