Welcome to the Angela Elizabeth Private Nursery


At Angela Elizabeth nursery we provide a caring, safe environment which children will find stimulating, challenging and where they will have fun. They are supported to be creative, foster enquiring minds and learn to care for others and their environment.

Situated in the village of Wilkieston just off the main A71 road, a few miles from both Edinburgh and Livingston makes it easily accessible to all. The nursery which is registered with the Care Commission, is West Lothians longest established. Our door is always open for advice and to answer questions. We encourage suggestions from parents as to how we may improve our service.

We aim to provide an all round service to families – parents and children. Since opening many happy families have passed through our doors and lots of happy confident children have progressed well and made the transition to primary school with ease.

Our Ethos

Angela Elizabeth Nursery is committed to providing a caring nurturing environment where children are encouraged to learn through play and where the curriculum meets the needs, abilities and interests of every child in partnership with their parents and their community.

We adopt a child centred approach in terms of meeting children’s needs through careful observation by staff and information shared from families. Our approaches to learning and teaching are relevant and challenging and take into account individual children’s experiences and interests.

We believe the provision of high quality learning activities for our children allows them to experience a sense of achievement. We have high expectations of our children and work in partnership with them and their families to achieve optimum learning outcomes. This approach is recognised as being the best way to support children.

Our values make us all STARS:- *Support, *Together, *Achieve, *Respect,*Succeed
