Why choose Carousel Nursery in Dumbarton:

Carousel Nursery, Dumbarton, is housed in a substantial Edwardian detached villa in the heart of Dumbarton.  Located 500 metres from Dumbarton Central Railway Station, 2 minutes from Morrisons, Asda and McDonalds and directly opposite Knoxland Primary School.  We are on the main road into Dumbarton and onwards to Glasgow or Helensburgh.

The Nursery has been completely refurbished with imagination and flair with stimulating displays to provide your child with a warm, friendly atmosphere.  Carousel Nurseries offers childcare, education, indoor and outdoor play to all children from 6 weeks to 5 years.

Your children are guided and supported through each stage of awareness and development by well trained and extremely competent staff.

Early Learning and Childcare Funded Places

Carousel Nursery is an approved partnership centre offering Local Authority Early Learning and Childcare funded places for all 3 and 4 year old children commencing the term after their 3rd birthday. Please ask for details.

Carousel Nurseries set very high standards, which our dedicated staff maintain at all times. Our Nurseries are extensively and imaginatively equipped to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for your child.


The Nurseries are staffed by a mixture of Qualified Nursery Nurses and Nursery Nurses working towards a childcare qualification. The one thing all of our staff have in common is their love of children and we all work together to create a happy, homely atmosphere for your child.

Through careful selection and ongoing training of staff we give your child the best possible care during their time with Carousel Nurseries. We were one of the first Nurseries to gain the Investors in People Award for our staff training and development programme and the same year won Dunbartonshire Enterprise’s Business Excellence Award for ‘Personnel Development’, following this up in 2000 with the “Service Excellence” Award. We have since been re-recognised as an Investor in People in 2000, 2003 and 2006. In 2007 we gained our IIP “10 year achievement award” and in 2009, we were delighted to again receive re-recognition from IIP, this time at Bronze level. We care for our staff in order that they will care for your child.
