Perfectly located in the enchanting grounds of Erskine Hospital State, Enchanted Forest Erskine first opened its doors in 2006.
Here we provide award-winning early learning and childcare for 63 children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. We operate in partnership with Renfrewshire Council to deliver Scottish Government funded pre-school education and are visited by a local primary teacher who supports our pre-school learning programmes.
Nursery Manager, Carla Donald is highly experienced in all aspects of Early Learning and Childcare as well as being an expert in managing an effective staff team by being an exemplary role model in the providing the very best for all children.
Our Staff Team are all paediatric first aid trained and are committed to the Enchanted Forest ethos of providing flexible, high quality early learning and childcare to families, ensuring we meet both the needs of each child as an individual as well as their families.
“The flexibility offered by EFN in accommodating our variable work schedules over the years has been second to none. Thank you EFN for taking the stress out of being a working parent. Lesley, EFN Erskine.”
At Enchanted Forest Erskine we focus on heuristic and sensory play indoors with our babies within a warm and loving environment, following ‘Pre-Birth to Three: Positive Outcomes for Scotland’s Children and Families.’
As children grow we follow the Curriculum for Excellence and ‘Building Ambition’ in providing planned activities and experiences that enrich and promote individual development.
We very much focus on a culture of ‘learning through play’ which allows children to learn through experimenting and experience as this is the way they learn best.
Our children have the benefit out exploring the outdoor learning environment, right outside our front door, which is the enchanting estate in which we are located. Children have regular access to the forest enabling the ongoing development of skills for life including confidence, social skills and communication. Outdoor learning is involved on a daily basis and children are encouraged to develop their own learning through risky play.
