At Mary Poppins Nursery each child is valued as a unique individual, who is given the best possible opportunities to become confident individuals, successful learners, responsible citizens and effective contributors!


Mary Poppins Nursery recognises that Health and Well-being are key factors in improving children’s emotional, physical and social development and in helping them to achieve their full potential.
At Mary Poppins Nursery we aim to foster in children an enquiring mind and love for learning, independence and self confidence, a respect for themselves and others as well as a respect for their world.

This is done by providing a supportive and stimulating environment full of interesting and challenging play opportunities, which are provided in consultation with children. We deliver varied and stimulating child centred learning experiences and outcomes through the 8 areas of Curriculum for Excellence:

  • Expressive Arts
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Literacy and English
  • Numeracy and Mathematics
  • Religion and Moral Education
  • Sciences
  • Social Studies
  • Technologies

and through the 4 principles of the Pre-Birth to Three guidelines:

  • Rights of the child
  • Relationships
  • Responsive care
  • Respect

We aim to be warm and welcoming and create an environment that is safe, attractive, friendly, caring and stimulating.

Children are recognised and valued as unique individuals with their own specific interests and needs. Through social interaction with their peers and staff, children are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and take pride in their nursery.

Mary Poppins also encourages positive relationships with parents and values the contribution that parents make to the nursery. Parents’ views and opinions are valued as part of the nursery’s process of self-evaluation and development.
