Freshest and healthiest ingredients

Only fresh ingredients, free from artificial additives, colourings and preservatives are used in all food preparation. 

Through our planning walls staff organise activities that allow the children to bake cakes and prepare food for their lunches, dinner or to take home.

Social interaction

Meal times are valuable for socialisation and interaction between children help them learn how to come together and be part of a group.

Healthy Meal for Children at NurseryIndependence and individual choice during meal times is encouraged with two menu options offered to children when choosing their lunch. 

The nursery also ensures we honour family dietary requirements or if your child has any special dietary needs they can usually be catered for by discussing with the nursery manager.

About Carousel Nursery

About Carousel Nursery Childcare 

The Carousel is a local, family-owned nursery, based in Bainsford, Falkirk, providing nursery childcare facilities since 2000.

Carousel Nursery SignOur Philosophy - We Listen to both You and Your Child

Parents and guardians best understand their child's personality and preferences and by working closely together we can make the right choices for you and your child.

Our aim is to provide a hugely positive experience for your child which will guarantee them the best start in life with children and adults working in collaboration to construct knowledge about and understand the world around them. 

Parents Staff Association (PSA)

The PSA (Parents Staff Association) meets regularly every 6 weeks and receives tremendous support from parents, who help plan and run events such as prize bingo, fun days and coffee mornings to help raise funds for the PSA. 


The proceeds from these events assist in funding Christmas and special occasion parties, a summer fete and day trips, as well as other agreed activities.

With help from the PSA we bought our clowntown children polo shirts, parents helped decide which colour to use, for the tshirts. Our very own little artist 3 years old Mirren Scott designed the logo to go on the Tshirts.    

For more information on your child attending the Carousel Nursery call Nicola or Tracie on 01324 630101 today or register your interest here for both your peace of mind and the best start for your child’s future.
