We know that children achieve to their highest through discovery, encouragement, and warm and secure relationships with adults and their peers.
Our Kindergarten staff provide high quality Early Learning and Childcare with children at the heart of all that we do. Our aim is to inspire every child to thrive in these crucial early years, the very first steps in their lifelong learning journey. In February 2020, our Kindergarten received a care inspectorate report at an evaluation of 'excellent' and 'very good'. You can read the full inspectorate report here.
The Kindergarten learning environment is very much a part of our Junior School, offering a seamless transition for children progressing into Junior 1. This connection throughout the pre-school year includes lessons from specialist teachers, and being welcomed into Junior School assemblies and events. Our dedicated staff work in partnership with their Junior School counterparts to ensure a smooth and seamless transition into Junior 1.
Lasting friendships are formed within our Kindergarten, with many continuing on throughout our childrens' entire experience at The High School of Glasgow.

My son, absolutely loved his time at The High School of Glasgow Kindergarten. The transition from nursery was really easy for Johnny. The experienced team had an excellent settling-in process and created an environment that was calm, well organised and welcoming. Johnny was given the chance the thrive through play-based learning and was encouraged to learn at his own pace, with support, should he need it. He was extremely happy and we saw his independence and confidence grow as he made new friends.
Communication between parent and teacher was exceptional. Daily conversations or emails ensured that Johnny’s individual needs were catered for. This was made even easier with Seesaw, an app that also included a photo diary of Johnny’s day! The High School of Glasgow Kindergarten is a safe, secure and nurturing environment, the perfect start to school life."Lucy Clark Fuller,
