We are very proud to announce that The Cottage Kindergarten was judged the overall winner of the prestigious Nursery World 'UK Nursery of the year' competition for 2012. The Cottage Kindergarten was the only shortlisted nursery school in Scotland and was competing against a number of other excellent nurseries in England to win the award. The judge, a former senior OFSTED inspector and government advisor on pre-school education, spent the day with each of the finalists, talking to staff, parents and the children. We were absolutely delighted that she concluded that The Cottage Kindergarten deserved the award this year. We were also honoured to receive one of only two commendations in the 'Enabling Environments' category for the quality of our outdoor activity area.
