About us
Welcome to Ankerville Nurseries

Ankerville House Nursery was established in 1999 with Ankerville Baby Unit following in 2003 and the purpose built Ankerville Alness following in 2007.

Carol MacRae, owner and founder has more than 30 years experience working with pre-school children and as a mother herself understands the importance of a happy nursery education.

Ankerville Nurseries has grown from a single nursery offering just 15 places to a 3 site operation with space for 169 children and over 50 staff.

Carol is still very involved in the running of all three nurseries and ensures she understands the needs of each and every child in Ankerville's care.

If you require and further information please do not hesitate to contact Carol or one of her staff on 01349 886520.
