St. Mary’s Kindergarten offers both a creative and fun start to the educational process for children aged 2-4 years.


Situated in the heart of Melrose, St Mary’s Kindergarten offers a flexible and caring approach to your child’s early learning and childcare education. Our unannounced inspection by the Care Inspectorate in January 2015 gave us the highest rating possible - “Excellent” – with praise for all aspects of our care and education including:
 Quote from the Care Inspectorate Report 2015:
"St. Mary's continues to provide positive opportunities for children to learn and be nurtured in a supported positive environment.  Children have opportunities to contribute to their own learning and are supported by staff who are able to further extend learning experiencies"
