Perfectly placed in the secure Spiersbridge Business Park, Enchanted Forest Thornliebank is the largest of our nursery group.
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, Christine Shand is highly experienced in all aspects of Early Learning and Childcare as well as being an expert in distributed leadership which creates a very nurturing staff who look forward to welcoming your family.
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 and ensure that we cater to the individual needs of each child.
From day 1 my son Aaron was made welcome and comfortable at Enchanted Forest Nursery. He has been very happy here and will miss it dearly. The staff are caring, supportive and encouraging and I appreciated their feedback about my son’s day. Aaron has developed a great deal and will miss his `ladies` as he referred to them. We are very grateful to everyone at Enchanted Forest and will never be able to thank them enough.
At Enchanted Forest Thornliebank we follow ‘Pre-Birth to Three: Positive Outcomes for Scotland’s Children and Families’ for our babies and ensure that their day is filled with heuristic and sensory play which is key to their development at this early stage.
As children grow we follow the Curriculum for Excellence and ‘Building Ambition’ in providing planned activities and experiences that enrich and further 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.
Perfectly placed near Rouken Glen, we take full advantage of the great outdoors in getting the children out into the local community. Providing an excellent learning environment, our children are encouraged to lead their own learning both on trips to Rouken Glen and the newly equipped outdoor area of the nursery. A brand new mud-kitchen was recently built by the dedicated staff team to improve learning experiences for children.
