Silverdale Nursery official opening

The children and staff of the new £4.3 million nursery were busy putting the finishing touches ahead of their special St Andrew's Day official opening celebrations.

Parents and invited guests were treated on the 30 November to lovely Scottish songs and cello music as City Convener for Education, Skills & Early Years Councillor Chris Cunningham unveiled the opening plaque.

The beautifully presented state-of-the-art new nursery, which opened earlier this year, is a 52 week facility that caters for 140 children full time and looked after by 30 early years' staff.

There are five bright and airy palyrooms and a baby room with a wonderful outdoor and secure garden play area with natural grass and soft surface.

The new nursery provides an excellent learning environment for the children as they begin their education journey.

Councillor Chris Cunningham, City Convener for Education, Skills & Early Years said: "This is a wonderful new facility for Dalmarnock's youngest residents.

"A bright and breezy learning environment that will make learning fun and open 52 weeks to give flexibility to parents and carers - especially with our expansion plans towards 1140 hours free early learning and childcare for 3 and 4 year olds and eligible 2 year olds by 2020."
