Bardykes receives Day Nurseries Top 20 award

Following on from being awarded the BEST OUTDOOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN THE UK, we are pleased to now be recognised as one of the Top 20 Nurseries in Scotland. 
We truly believe the best way to learn, thrive and become confident is outdoors in the natural world around us here at Bardykes Farm. 
We must thank our wonderful families for the ongoing support they have shown us and for writing these wonderful reviews for Day Nurseries. 
Our experienced long standing team of early years experts always show compassion, patience, love and care for all of our children, their families and the animals in our care.


Bardykes Farm Nursery School Celebrate our 30th Anniversary 1991-2021 

We are delighted to be celebrating 30 years of success this summer! We are very proud to welcome new parents who actually came to nursery here and are now bringing their own children. Thank you to all the families who have supported our family business over the past 30 years.

National Nursery Awards 2020

The National Nursery Awards 2020 is an annual event organised by Nursery Management Today. The Awards are designed to reward excellence in childcare and celebrate the very best in the Nursery Sector. There were 16 categories to enter and there were five finalists in this category with two independent judges. Bardykes was the judges’ clear winner. Here is the feedback: “The setting oozed a strong ethos of compassion, fun, warmth and loveliness! Children were given time to pace their own learning using magical spaces to wonder, be amazed and totally engage. Through hide and find, throwing stones in river, collecting eggs, tree swinging and gorge walking, children felt they owned the place and took great delight in showing their guests around” 
Mrs Ailsa Wilkie, owner since 1991 said: "We are delighted to receive this recognition for all the hard work we have done over so many years. Thank you to all the families for supporting us and the team of wonderful workers who have made the nursery what it is today. 2020 has been a very tough year for everyone and the team and families deserve this now, more than ever."
Winners of the National NMT Nursery Awards were announced at the virtual awards held in November 2020 attended by over 550 guests. The Bardykes Dream Team were looking forward to the Hilton but instead, due to covid, they celebrated in Black Tie Style virtually from inside the nursery.
