What we do
The centre is situated in the fields of Millbank Primary School in Nairn. Junior World Childcare Group offers Early Learning and Childcare for children aged from two years up to 12 years (or primary school age). We are supported by Highland Council to provide funded ELC spaces for two, three and four-year-olds.
There is an outdoor area which is securely fenced off to allow children access to physical play on a daily basis and we access local woodlands and the beach whenever we can. We encourage children to take care of their environment and children are very involved in our Eco-Schools Project
We have a very popular Breakfast Club and Out of School Care for children age 2-12 years. Staff escort and collect children to Millbank and Rosebank Primary. JW is also open throughout the school holidays 8am to 6pm, subject to demand (closed for Christmas and New Year fortnight)
