Overview of Our Nurseries

We want every child in Scotland to have the choice to attend an outdoor nursery. Willow Den creates opportunities for this to happen in the heart of communities so that children can play and learn near to where they live, developing a real sense of ‘place.’

The Willow Den Site Model

Each Willow Den nursery is unique, special, and makes use of the surrounding area’s natural resources,
and whilst the settings of our nurseries may change, you can always expect some things to stay the same.

Anything you can teach in an indoor classroom can be taught outdoors, often in ways that are more enjoyable for children.”
