About Us

Pilrig Children’s Nursery is a small family-run nursery which provides a safe, stimulating and  happy place for children to play, learn and thrive.

We take great pride and pleasure in seeing the children grow and develop through our combination of outdoor learning and child centred play. Our spacious and sunny playrooms open out on to the large garden enabling smooth free-flow indoors and outdoors play for children of all ages.
