Welcome to

Happy Feet Nursery School and Out of School Club.

Happy Feet Nursery School & Out of School Club is a safe, nurturing environment. A place where your child’s needs and development will receive the attention and care that they need. You can therefore rest assured your child’s well-being is provided on an individual basis. With plenty of opportunities for fun, play, learning and rest. Every child is unique: each has their individual personality, strengths, interests and learning style.

As a result our aims are simple; because we provide the highest standards in quality of care and education. We therefore believe that happiness and emotional security are vital elements to each child’s well-being. We also promote a sense of ‘self’ as a valued individual. To achieve this we provide a secure, happy, friendly, stimulating and culturally diverse environment where children are challenged. In addition ensuring that they reach their full potential and above all else are nurtured and cared for.

We undertake rigorous verification of professional references, all our staff are cleared by Disclosure Scotland. Staff are all SSSC (Scottish Social Services Council) registered and are kind, considerate, professional, caring and responsive to the individual child’s needs.

Happy Feet Nursery School and Out of School is centrally located in Larkhall, Lanarkshire. At the junction of Claude Street and Academy Street. We accept Nursery School and Out of School children from Hamilton, Strathaven, Stonehouse, Wishaw, Overtown, Motherwell and the surrounding areas. We have an unrivalled location in Larkhall town centre, opposite Avon Medical Centre and Larkhall Fire Station. Right in the centre of the community with public transport links close by and ample free parking. Happy Feet is open from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday for those requiring day care. 

Furthermore the Nursery School is fully furnished with ‘Community Play’ resources. Offering a complete end to end solution creating a perfect learning environment for the children. In addition the way that our children play influences the design of the playrooms. Because each item is designed to support open-ended play making sure a child’s imagination is never limited. Consequently our furniture is modular and adaptable enabling the environment to be changed and developed. Our premises are set to a very high standard. The facilities on offer for parents makes us one of the most sought after childcare providers in the area.

We look forward to welcoming all children and parents to Happy Feet!

The staff are all very capable and interested in their role. In all honesty, I have never been in a workplace where everyone does their individual role well apart from here.

They each understand the pressures of parents and children and meet all my requirements outstandingly.

“I dreaded going back to work and leaving Emily in the care of ‘some wee girls’. At least that’s what it felt like at the time, but I think that says more about my age than anything else.

I really needn’t have worried as all of the staff in the baby room were fantastic. 16 months on, Emily still absolutely loves nursery and learns something new every day in the toddler room. Her wee brother now goes to the baby room and there was no dread involved at all this time round, as I knew I was leaving him in capable hands.”
