At Wellside Kindergarten it is our aim to introduce a stimulating and happy environment in day care for children, providing the highest standard of professional childcare and education for children aged birth to five years. We greatly encourage the natural joy of discovery in each child and through activity, play and learning by example, nurture a caring, considerate attitude. Relating in a positive way to their peers, enjoying team activities, sharing conversations and accomplishing tasks together all pave the way for the road ahead.
Caring for your child is our number one priority and in partnership with parents we will ensure that we take the time to support each individual child's personal development. Children are listened to and encouraged to take an active role in deciding what we do in the nursery, which in turn makes a real difference to the crucial development of their personal and social skills. Caring, well experienced and fully qualified staff provide well balanced activities
We are quietly situated only minutes from Falkirk town centre and close to all amenities. Wellside Place lies between Falkirk Town Hall and Falkirk Police Station. The nursery is within walking distance of both Grahamston and Falkirk High railway stations

The garden is easily accessible from all playrooms and children have the opportunity to play in the garden all year round.
