Ankerville House Nursery and Ankerville Alness provide a service of before and after school care for children from 5 years during term time and a holiday club during school holidays as well as inservice days.

Children playing outside


The nursery opens at 8am allowing children to access the resources before they are accompanied to school by a member of staff.

Before and After School Care

After school care begins at 2.30pm, where a member of staff will collect the children from school. On arrival at Ankerville the children will be provided with a healthy snack and a drink. In this afternoon session, until close of the nursery at 5.30pm, the children are free to access all resources such as: ICT equipment, outdoor play area, board games, craft & drawing materials and a soft play games room. The staff will follow the children’s interests and support them with their chosen activity each day.

Planning for the After School Club includes working closely with the children in incorporating their ideas and interests, and we also welcome parent feedback and ideas through our suggestion board.

We collect children from the following schools:

Knockbreck Primary School, Tain

Craighill Primary School, Tain

Bridgend Primary School, Alness
