Stepping Stones Nursery welcomes children aged 3 months to 5 years and their families. We have two buildings situated on Victoria Road in Tain (right beside each other), which are open from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday all year round, with the exception of one week in July and 2 weeks over Christmas.

Play Areas

We offer both indoor and outdoor play areas. The gardens are situated at the rear of the buildings and offer a safe, enclosed space for children to play and learn. Each play room in both buildings offer direct access to the outdoor space. Our team are committed to providing a secure, stimulating, creative and caring environment for all children.


As well as our indoor and outdoor spaces, we try and make good use of our local environment by going out for walks, visiting local shops and businesses as well as developing links with other care providers such as our friends at the Alzheimer’s Resource Centre.

Children develop a feeling of security and confidence when they know their parents/carers and teachers are working together. We look forward to working with your family to make your child’s time at Nursery rewarding and to ensure the transition into primary years is a smooth experience.
