Victoria Primary School Nursery

The new Victoria primary school and nursery was opened in 2022.

  • The nursery home corner with natural wood furniture, children's chairs are stacked, low dividers partition the room into activity areas
  • A green playground with children playing, a sandpit, paths and small hill in front of the nursery building
  • a small prep kitchen in the nursery, grey units with sinks for adults and children and white tiles

Holmes Miller were appointed by the Council to create designs for the new primary school and nursery. The buildings have been designed to promote independent, child led learning and play and meet the area metric set by the capital investment grant. 

The designs incorporate lessons learned from the 2014 ELC expansion from 475 hours to 600 hours, the Council’s operational requirements, regulatory requirements from the Care Inspectorate and the Scottish Government’s Early Learning Childcare design guidance ‘Space to Grow’.
