ACE Place Nursery & Out of School Care, est 2010. Our connections with children and their families are at the heart of our service delivery.

We are Adaptable, Approachable, Ambitious, Caring, Fun Loving, Inclusive & Professional and we trust these values are evident in our daily routines. We Care, We Nurture, We PLAY.

We are accessible to families living in Burnside, Rutherglen, Cambuslang, Kings Park, and surrounding areas and have become a firm favorite with local families and children alike.

Our services are open from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday and we close for just 4 days per year, over the Christmas and New Year holidays.  We offer flexible term-time contracts for children aged 3-5 and have funding available to those who are eligible.

Based at Crawfurd Road Burnside and Rodger Drive Rutherglen, both settings are close to main bus routes and Burnside Train Station.

We are fully committed to Outdoor Learning with children of all ages having daily access to outdoor play.  This is even more important in the current climate so we have extended our gardens to give our children even more outdoor space.  We now have almost 1500 sqm of garden space with a variety of surfaces to ensure year-round access.  We even have an outdoor kitchen where children can learn to cook their own food on our Haba BBQ.

Children attending Crawfurd Road Nursery also spend the majority of their time outdoors but have the benefit of a wonderful natural indoor environment too.
