You may be aware that the First Minister has now confirmed that early years services will be able to reopen for all children from Monday Monday February 22nd. Following a meeting with Stirling Council this morning I am happy to confirm that Cambusbarron Village Nursery will therefore re-open on Monday in line with these plans.
Please be aware that we remain under strict guidance which aims to minimise the risk of infection spread and that our additional hygiene measures and precautions will remain in place. In particular please ensure that:
- you do not come to nursery if you or anyone in your household is unwell or has any symptoms of COVID
- only one adult comes to drop off or collect a child
- face coverings are worn when inside the Community Centre
- you sign in and out using our Test and Protect code 9905
- you maintain physical distancing
We look forward to seeing you next week.

Outdoor play gets children active and lets their imagination run wild. It helps them develop both mentally and emotionally, stay healthy, and have fun.
Here are some ideas for learning in the outdoors from Dr Claire Warden’s Virtual Nature School.
In line with the latest Scottish Government advice to Stay at Home we will be reinstating and adding to our set of parental resources for use until we are again able to return to a more normal nursery routine. Activities and challenges can be seen on our COVID Resources tab while our book shelf of stories read aloud by nursery staff and others can be found on the Books read Aloud tab. We will continue to keep you updated with resources and information as we come across them.
Cambusbarron Village Nursery is now closed for the festive break. We wish everyone a joy filled though potentially different Christmas and we hope for a better 2021 for everyone.
In line with current Scottish Government advice we aim to re-open to all children on Monday Jan 18th.
