Aberdeenshire's first fully outdoor nursery!
We were excited to open Aberdeenshire's very first fully outdoor nursery on 22nd August 2017, and what a fantastic first year we have had!
The wonderfully wild Kirkton of Maryculter Woods offers an inspiring environment, with a number of play areas for the children to choose from. Child led, holistic and nurturing, we are offering something truly unique to the area.
In the company of warm, caring adults, children have freedom to explore, investigate and 'be', enabling them to develop socially, emotionally and academically and with a true connection to the natural world.

We offer places for children aged between 3 and 5 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during school terms. Our Kindergarten children are also welcome to join us for our holiday clubs.
Our hours are:
Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday 8:30am-4:30pm
We work in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council to offer funded places for 3-5 year olds. From the term following their third birthday, 3-5 year olds in Scotland are entitled to 17.5 hours of funded childcare each week during school terms. Parents can apply for a funded place at Mucky Boots using the form above. Shared places are available so it is possible to use part of your funding with us and part with another Nursery. Just let us know which hours will be spent where and we will sort the rest!
