Ankerville House Tain

Ankerville House Nursery was opened in 1999 and is housed in a traditional Georgian house in the centre of Tain.

The nursery is split over two floors both with direct access to the garden area.

Ankerville House Nursery is open from 8am to 5.30pm and offers after school care to children age 5 - 12.

A Key Worker system operates in the nursery where each child is allocated 1 member of staff responsible for both settling in and compiling your child’s Learning Journal. This is a collection of written and photographic evidence and observations relating to your child’s development and progress whilst they are at the nursery.
