Conveniently located in the Harbourside, Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland, The Owl & Pussycat Nursery is a family run day care nursery which provides complete childcare for all children from birth to five years. From the moment your child first enters our purpose built, state of the art, fully equipped nursery, you can be assured our fully trained and professional team of staff will provide them with a happy, loving, secure and stimulating environment in which every child steadily progresses and develops through the various stages of their formative years.

We aim to provide home from home surroundings where everyone’s valued, respected and supported. By continually striving towards the development of an idyllic environment in which all children are provided with support, time and space, enables children to grow and develop their self confidence, self esteem and overall enjoyment of life. We also aim to achieve the goals set out by the Scottish Executive Curriculum for Excellence by providing a nurturing environment for young children through the highest standards of care and education.

Our nursery is structured to suit the needs and requirements of each individual age group. For this purpose the nursery is split into three purpose built rooms, each one catering for a specific age group. Situated away from the other rooms we also have a Music and Movement Room which is used for physical and group activities. Additional rooms include the General Office, Parents Room, Kitchen, Dining Room, Staff Room and Baby Sleep Room. We also have a fully equipped, safe, spacious, garden play area with a wide range of exciting outdoor equipment.

We pride ourselves on building strong and effective working partnerships with all Parents and Carers which helps ensure that Parents are confident that their child is happy, safe, well cared for and stimulated at all times. Parents and Carers are welcome to come into the nursery at any time to see how their child is progressing. We also provide you with regular feedback on your child’s development which helps you make sure they gain the most from their experience in the nursery. With our own resident Chef, we also take great pride in our delicious, healthy, nutritious meals and snacks.

We offer a daily intake of 59 registered places and are registered with The Scottish Care Commission for the Regulation of Care and are subject to annual inspections. We also work in partnership with North Ayrshire Council. To make life that little bit easier for you, when dropping off or picking up your child we have a large car park directly outside the nursery.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and look forward to catering for all your childcare needs.
