Our Nursery

Welcome to Happitots Nursery South Lanarkshire where we provide stimulating and inspiring childcare for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age.

Happitots Day Nursery has been an established and trusted early education centre since 2009. Our nursery accommodates children of South Lanarkshire College students and staff, providing tailored care to suit College hours and term times. 

We are situated in a stunning, light and spacious new building linked to the South Lanarkshire College campus, with plenty of off-street parking allowing for easy and safe drop-off and collection. We have dedicated areas for individual age groups, each of which are beautifully designed and generously resourced with quality toys and furnishings. Each area also has direct access to outdoor play areas to encourage outdoor learning across all areas of the curriculum.

Children are cared for by an enthusiastic and experienced team of childcare practitioners who plan activities to meet the needs of each individual child. We are also visited by a local teacher who provides more focused learning activities and opportunities for our Preschool aged children to develop early literacy and numeracy skills.
