Care Inspectorate Report

Finally our report is available for all to see!! We have waited a long time for it to be published, this was due to the absence of our inspecting officer.

I am extremely pleased with the report and how our staff team have been recognised for the hard work and commitment they provide to our children and parents on a daily basis.


Please feel free to access it online or we have a copy available in the nursery foyer for you to have a look at too. There is also a copy of the Fife Council Partnership Inspection Report available in the foyer. This inspection took place last week and I am pleased to say reiterated all of the Care Inspectorate grades.

We gave the service these grades

Quality of care and support 5 Very Good

Quality of environment 5 Very Good

Quality of staffing 5 Very Good

Quality of management and leadership 5 Very Good



'What Happens in Clever Clogs'

Sports Day Update

We have just been up the park to check the grass and unfortunately it is wet and slippy. We therefore have made the decision to cancel sports day.

We can't risk children falling and hurting themselves and do not want them sitting in the rain either.


We apologise for the late notice but we were hoping the weather would improve and we could go ahead.


Wow - we did it! Another successful float in the gala parade.
Thank you to all parents and children who took part and also a massive thanks to our amazing volunteers. So glad the rain stayed off for the parade.


Clever Clogs Childcare Centre

can officially let all parents/carers know that our application for Fife Council Partnership Funding has been accepted.

This now means that from August 2015, children can attend Clever Clogs for their government funded entitlement of pre school education and parents/carers will not be charged for the allocated times that their child would usually attend a Fife Council nursery.

Pick up/drop offs to local nurseries will now be charged as extra from August as we will then be in partnership. 

Children aged 3-5 can now attend Clever Clogs for their government funded hours. We can offer 16 hours free childcare for hours/days to suit yourself. They don't need to work in with our usual session times.

Funded places Now available.

Wrap Around Care with local schools and nurseries.

Flexible daycare to suit working parents.


If you would like to discuss any of this further please speak to a member of staff. If you would like any further information, please call us on 01383 832883.

Many Thanks

*********FUNDED PLACES********* - Please feel free to share this post so other parents are aware that we can offer flexible funded childcare for over 3's.

We have finally received the much awaited news on our funded places with Fife Council.

Children are entitled to 15 hours 50 minutes funded education each week starting the term after reaching their third birthday. This can now take place within Clever Clogs, a Fife Council nursery or on a split placement between the two ...nurseries. We are extremely flexible with these hours and therefore children can attend Clever Clogs on varied days/hours each week (if availability allows). Instead of working in days/half day prices for our funded children we will now work in hours - £4 per hour.

E.g. * Children can attend Clever Clogs for the hours they would usually attend a Fife Council nursery and parents will not get charged.

* Children can attend us for full or half day sessions and we can use their allocated entitled hours against their fees - some children may attend 2 full days or others for whatever hours their parents/guardians require. Fife Council will fund their places and parents will only be responsible for anything over 16 hours payable at £4 per hour.

* Or Children can do a split placement between 2 different nurseries (as long as they attend each one for a minimum of 6 hours. This is to ensure children receive a quality experience where their learning can be tracked and fully supported) Some parents may have their child attend a Fife Council nursery for 2 sessions and then have them attend Clever Clogs for their further 3 sessions e.g. a day and a half or whatever may suit them.

We are very flexible and will happily discuss each child's requirements. Please note that as we are now in partnership we have introduced a pick up/drop off charge for children attending another nursery and require transport.

If you are interested and would like further information, please call the nursery on 01383 832883.

Good luck to all of our children starting primary one today. We will miss you lots but wish you all the best in your new adventure. Hope mummies, daddies and grandparents all have the tissues ready! Can't wait to see all the photos

 What a fantastic day we all had at Kelty Gala!

A big thank you to all the parents/guardians who went to so much effort with the children (and their own!) costumes, you all looked fantastic. Also a massive thank you to the staff who put in so much time and effort to make sure the float looked great and the day went smoothly! 

And finally a big thank you for all your patience whilst waiting in the parade queue - the children were amazing and did us all proud.
