Ankerville Alness Nursery
Ankerville Alness Nursery was opened in October 2007 and occupies a purpose built single storey building situated on the edge of Teannich Industrial Estate and within easy walking distance of Alness High Street. The nursery has direct access to a large garden area with outdoor play equipment.

Ankerville Alness Nursery can cater for up to 113 children per session, and the current session times are 9am -12pm  and 1pm - 4pm within the Government funded sessions. Children in the 3-5’s nursery must stay at the nursery for lunch one day a week either 9.00am - 1pm or 12pm - 4pm.  Further hours are available at an hourly charge.
Ankerville Alness Nursery is open from 8am to 5.30pm.

A Key Worker system operates in the nursery where each child is allocated a member of staff responsible for both settling in and compiling your child’s profile report. The profile is a collection of written and photographic evidence and observations relating to your child’s development and progress whilst they are at the nursery.
