About Us

Cambusbarron Village Nursery CIC is a community interest company formed in 2019 to provide high quality early learning experiences for children between age 2 1/2 and starting school. Cambusbarron Village Nursery is built upon the strong foundations laid by  Cambusbarron Playgroup, a service which served the community of Cambusbarron and the surrounding areas for some 50 years. Cambusbarron Village Nursery aims to retain the values and ethos of the Playgroup movement while delivering a service more suited to modern lifestyles. Our service works in partnership with Stirling Council and we are pleased to be able to offer fully funded (free) places to children in the 2 years before they start school. We can also offer additional hours as well as places for children aged from 2 1/2 years on a fee paying basis (see our Information Booklet for more information). Our service is governed by a Board of Directors and is delivered by a professionally qualified staff team.

As a Community Interest Company we are a nonprofit making organisation and any surplus is invested back into our service for the benefit of our community.
