Flying Start Nursery is situated in a beautiful former ‘Church Manse’ on the Main Street of Sauchie. The building has been extensively refurbished and modified to meet the various needs of all children’s age groups, with a caring and friendly ethos and high standards throughout. Car parking is located to the front,or in the church car park next to the nursery. Inside the building is bright, airy and clean with a happy and calm atmosphere.
We are registered with the Care Inspectorate for up to sixty children aged between six weeks and school age. The Care Inspectorate carry out routine inspections of the Nursery to ensure that the Standards of Service provided are maintained.
We also work in partnership with Clackmannanshire Council to provide funded places to children aged three years and above as well as some eligible 2yr olds.
Our greatest asset is our staff and they are all registered as Childcare Practitioners with the Scottish Social Services Council. They are all members of the PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) Scheme. Their collective knowledge and experiences are what makes them such a strong team.
