Indigo Early Years Services

Our Early Years Nurseries offer full day care for busy parents. Open 8am – 5.45pm, 49 weeks per year (closed on Public Holidays and In-Service Days).

We offer you peace of mind to concentrate on your work, education or training knowing that your children are experiencing the best possible care. There are two buildings that Early Years services are run from below...

Indigo Early Years at 123 Castlemilk Drive Castlemilk (0-3 years)

This building is well placed in the centre of Castlemilk specialising in care and education for our youngest children. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your child will experience a balance of high quality play experiences with opportunities for rest and relaxation. This is the smaller of our two nursery buildings offering a more intimate setting with a maximum of 32 children aged 6 weeks to 3 years.

We continuously aim to improve your child’s experience by providing curriculum based activities and outdoor play. We welcome parents and carers views and aim to work closely with you to meet your child’s needs.

For parents wishing to access Pre School education our staff will support the transition for children age 3 and over to our ‘big nursery’ by arranging play visits using our mini bus.

These sessions provide a valuable opportunity for your child to become familiar with a nursery within a school, we believe this transition supports your child’s journey and helps to prepare for starting school. We recognise that parents are busy and so we offer evening visits and tours to enable you to visit and ask questions without having to take time off.
