Strathdearn Daycare Centre for Children
The Strathdearn Daycare Centre is a registered charity that provides childcare for nursery and primary school age children. The children’s daycare centre complements the Strathdearn Primary School and Nursery by providing childcare immediately after nursery and school finishes, ensuring seamless childcare for busy parents. This means childcare is available in our community from 9am – 6pm, Monday – Friday during term-time.
The Strathdearn Daycare Centre is the first of its kind in a rural Highland village and is a huge benefit to living in the Strathdearn catchment area.
The Strathdearn Daycare Centre is approved by the Care Inspectorate and childcare is provided by the Care and Learning Alliance (CALA) on the charities behalf, ensuring safe and quality childcare is always provided.
Our aim is to provide safe, sustainable and affordable childcare for families within the Strathdearn and surrounding area. We hope this will reduce some of the childcare stress felt by parents, help remove barriers to employment, to offer interesting and stimulating play for the children and hope we can have a positive impact on the economic development of our community.
