Welcome to Oranges & Lemons Rosebank! We are a 65 place nursery who care for children from birth to 5 years. Our nursery is situated close to Dundee’s city centre, not far from the city’s university. We are open Monday-Friday, 7am-6pm.
Our nursery has a secure entry system and ample parking to allow for easy drop off and collection. We have four separate playrooms for each of our age groups, allowing our children to learn at their own pace.
Rosebank provides a safe and secure environment for children to learn, play and develop. We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that provides young people with the best possible learning opportunities and experiences. We encourage all children to develop positive attitudes and support activities and relationships that will help to build their confidence and self-esteem.

Baby Room (0-2 years)
In our Baby Room we care for children from birth to 2 years. This is a bright, spacious room where our babies and toddlers have the opportunity to explore and exceed in their development.
We facilitate sensory play, story/music time, art, problem solving and imaginative play on a daily basis.
We have a separate sleeping area where our babies and toddlers can rest and sleep in the quiet. Our 0-2s have direct access to our garden, enabling our children to become familiar with the natural surroundings of outdoors. In our garden we have a built-in sand pit, providing opportunities for imaginative and creative play.
Toddlers (2-3 years)
Our 2-3s area consists of two rooms: A quiet room to relax and take some time out in a peaceful area and an active room to take part in many stimulating learning experiences such as art, construction, messy play, role play, small world play, sand and water play.
Our 2-3s have their own designated snack area where our children learn to become responsible citizens and confident individuals.
We have a designated area of the garden which has a wooden bridge and some long stepping logs to enable development of balancing skills.
Preschool (3-5 years)
Our 3-5s area consists of two rooms. A carpeted room and a messy/art room. Our carpeted room has a role play area, snack/games table, construction area, writing area and small world area. We have a computer for children to develop their I.T skills and activities to develop literacy and numeracy skills.
Our 3-5s have direct access to our garden where they can develop knowledge and understanding about the world around them.
Our Garden & Outdoor Play
We benefit from having an extensive outdoor area split into four separate secure gardens. Three of these areas are furnished with soft flooring allowing younger children opportunities to explore the outdoors. Our fourth area incorporates natural grass and wooden tree stumps to allow children the opportunity to use their imagination and create their own private space.
Weather does not limit our opportunities for outdoor learning so we ask parents to provide appropriate clothing so our children are always ready to explore all elements of nature.
Activities and Extras
We are pleased to offer a variety of activities including; outdoor play, music-based activities, role play, messy play, art, water and sand play, stories and construction. We benefit from Zoo Lab and music teacher visits and are able to offer some baby sensory classes.
We are currently looking into offering Zumba classes and swimming lessons and will liaise with our parents on any further activity options we can offer that will contribute to the learning, confidence and independence of the children in our care.
Learning and Development
Here at Rosebank we take children’s learning and development very seriously and ensure all our children reach their full potential. To achieve this we ensure that we are responsive to children by supporting their needs and areas of interests. We work closely with our parents and other professionals ensuring we have a shared sense of vision for our children’s future.
We offer many opportunities to enhance all round development, focusing greatly on health and wellbeing, communication and language development and numeracy skills. We ensure all our children are nurtured, safe, responsible, respected, healthy, included, active and achieving. We follow local and national guidance such as Curriculum for Excellence, Pre Birth to Three & Learning Together in Dundee.
