Kelvinside Academy nursery approved
October 1 2012
The independent school has commissioned Elder & Cannon to design the new nursery, which will accommodate classrooms, ancillary spaces and an external play area.
Kelvinside Academy rector Robert Karling said: “This purpose built new facility will provide a stimulating environment for high quality childcare. Surrounded by green open spaces, health and well-being will be an integral feature of the school’s early years education.
“Its location within the Balgray Campus, alongside the neighbouring sports pavilion and facilities, will enable young children to embrace outdoor learning; a major part of the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence.
“Opportunities for outdoor learning will be enhanced further through the provision of a series of covered, safe, secure and soft play areas whilst the nursery’s south facing new classrooms fronting the playing fields will lead to an outdoor learning garden pavilion.”
The nursery is scheduled to complete in summer 2013.
