Welcome to Chapter One Childcare - Kirk Brae!

My name is Rebecca Laird and I manage the nursery, assisted by my dedicated and committed staff team, who strive for excellence to ensure the highest quality of Care.

I have been with Chapter One for over 5 years and I have completed my SVQ Level 4 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development. Our nursery is open Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm and cares for all children between the ages of 3 months and 5 years.

We believe that learning should be fun and fun should be learning, learning happens everywhere, especially in an ever-changing outdoor environment. Our focus is on the children, they are the future and the most important people and they should be treated so.

We expect our teams to see learning from the child’s point of view by getting down to their level, only this way do we see what they are seeing every day.

As adults, we are here to enable play opportunities and therefore learning opportunities, we will not get in the way of natural learning experiences. We will simply match the curriculum with the children’s interests and needs.

We want children to learn without even realising they are doing so.

If you like the sound of our Ethos and would like to arrange a viewing around our nursery, you can call us or email us – and we will be happy to answer all your questions.

We look forward to meeting you.

Kind Regards
