Ankerville Baby Unit Tain
The Ankerville Baby Unit was opened in May 2002 and is located in a quiet residential area of Tain. The nursery accommodates children under 3 who are separated by age across two separate rooms. There is direct access to an enclosed garden with a selection of outdoor toys.

The Ankerville Baby Unit can cater for 16 children per session. A minimum of 3 sessions per week is required and sessions are 9am – 1pm or 1pm – 4.00pm. Further hours are available at an hourly charge. Ankerville Baby Unit is open from 8am to 5.30pm.

Children progress from Ankerville Baby Unit to Ankerville House Nursery in Tain.

A Key Worker system operates in the nursery where each child is allocated one 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.

Each child under two years is given a Daily Diary which is completed each day by their Key Worker and communicates to the parents / carers all relevant information each day. Parents are responsible for providing the nursery staff with their child’s preferred brand of nappies and wipes and a packed lunch if required. All children are given a healthy snack and a drink.
