Private Nursery Ayr

Welcome to Doonvale

We are a private nursery school set within the beautiful countryside of Alloway, Ayr. Our converted farm buildings contain three bright, spacious playrooms for children age 6 weeks to 5 years. 

Doonvale places a strong emphasis on outdoor play/learning and our children have daily access to two large, covered playbarns, nature walks within the grounds of the estate, as well as our fantastic Secret Garden. 

Since opening Doonvale in April 2003, some of the achievements over the years have been:


  • Accreditation as a Health Promoting School

  • Successful HMIe Inspection in 2006, 2010 and 2014

  • Annual Care Commission inspections and reports

  • Positive working partnership with South Ayrshire's Pre-Five department

  • Implementation of the Curriculum for Excellence in The Granary

  • Regular participation in Ayrshire Music Festival

  • Smooth and effective transition between nursery classes and nursery to primary school

However, our biggest achievement we believe is in providing a happy, warm, safe, secure, stimulating and challenging environment in which our children thrive, gain confidence, self esteem and are encouraged to develop their full potential.
