My child has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Kilbirnie Early Learners.
From the very first visit we made we felt very welcome and settling in is done to suit both child and parent - so warm and comforting, and no pressure. There are always a great range of activities on offer to suit all interests. The teachers interact really well with the children, and also the parents. They are always happy to answer any questions you may have. I highly recommend Kilbirnie Early Learners.

My children have both attended this crèche over the last 3 years and we love it. The crèche provides a very nurturing environment with plenty of interesting and diverse activities where the children can learn through play. The centre has a positive, welcoming, community feel where parents feel comfortable to visit or stay as they wish (however mine prefer me to leave)
