Welcome to our Kindergarten

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 2019 gave us the highest rating possible - “Excellent” – with praise for all aspects of our care and education including:


We spoke to six parents throughout the inspection. It was clear they were very happy with the care their children received and that children were 'developing great and were always learning something new'. They held staff and the service in high regard and told us the 'Kindy is fabulous and staff are so warm and welcoming.

Care Inspectorate Report, 2019

Parents comments from the official report include:

(Child) has settled wonderfully and is excited to go and when you drop (child) there (child) is comfortable and confident to go and play. The staff are warm and welcoming and always cheerful. The children have lots out to do and they have fantastic outside space to use. The staff are always giving feedback and there are days when they do specific things like PE, ICT. I think this is a brilliant introduction for the children into these subjects.
