The Nursery years are the start of your child’s educational journey and adventure at Kelvinside Academy.  

Whether they are logical thinkers, enjoying maths and language, or prefer dancing and role play, the Nursery and Kelvinside Academy as a whole will help them to discover their talents and develop their skills for adult life.

Our Nursery provides high quality education and care for boys and girls from 3 to 5 years. The Nursery is a purpose built, state of the art building situated at our Balgray campus in the West End of Glasgow. 

It provides the children with opportunities for indoor and outdoor learning, surrounded by green open spaces.

There are two large open plan play areas with ICT resources, a book area, baking, messy play and physical play spaces. In addition to the Nursery’s secure outdoor play area, the children have wider use of the facilities at the Balgray campus, including all weather surfaces, playing fields and wild gardens.

Kelvinside Academy Nursery received an unannounced Care Inspectorate visit in September 2018.
The Inspector spent a day with the team, examining two themes - support & care and management. Head of Nursery, Mrs Tracy Nugent, was delighted to share that they had been awarded the top score of 6’s in both areas. These scores position KA Nursery as a sector-leading establishment.
