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.  Through our Riverside site, we can now also cater for families from Carluke and surrounding areas.

We offer full-year contracts for all children as well as flexible term-time contracts for children aged 3-5.  We have funding available to those who are eligible with a range of attendance patterns to suit your family’s needs.

All our settings are close to local transport links.

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 at Rodger Drive 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.

Children at Riverside enjoy regular outdoor sessions and have a variety of covered and open spaces to choose from during their daily outdoor play.
