Bradshaw Children’s Nursery - Saltcoats

We have been providing childcare and early learning in Saltcoats since 2004 with the same friendly professional management team who have a passion for care.

At Bradshaw Early Years Centre we have successfully created a homely environment with a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for learning.

We pride ourselves in the high standard of nurture and care we provide, to each and every child, encouraging strong bonds to form with the child and their families. Parental involvement is important to us and we value and encourage parents to be involved in their child’s care and learning and will involve you every step of the way.

We use national documents such as “Pre-Birth to Three” and “The Curriculum for Excellence” when planning for the individual child to ensure their needs are met.

We encourage independence, helping children to achieve through hands on experience in order to reach their own true potential, at their own rate. Our staff are qualified and experienced to care for your child lovingly and professionally.

We are available from Monday to Friday 7:30am to 6pm. ( We only close for Christmas, New year & Easter )
