How is Puddle Lane different to other children’s nurseries in Renfrewshire, Glasgow and beyond?

Puddle Lane Early Learning and Childcare Centre has large, open-plan playrooms that are modern and state-of-the-art, designed specifically for the age and stage of the children to whom it belongs. It is extremely spacious for children to run and play freely.

We have our very own soft play area filled with climbing frames, slides and colourful ball pools complete with a dedicated baby zone. The impressive size has the children (and their parents) in awe. The little ones have an endless amount of fun exploring, climbing and stretching.

Our large indoor grass area ensures children get active and enjoy ball games no matter what the Scottish weather has planned. The indoor grass area does lead directly outdoors, encouraging children to venture outside into nature. Our community garden is within easy reach and children begin to understand the world around them by growing and nurturing their own fruit and vegetables and fragrant flowers.

Mealtimes are enjoyed by all too. At Puddle Lane, there is a dedicated, harmonious dining area for children and adults to come together and socialise while discovering healthy food choices and their likes and dislikes. The pace is relaxed and looked forward to, with no need to setup tables and chairs each day.
