Clever Clogs Nursery was first established in July 2000 and is owned by Clare Devlin who is fully involved in the running of the nursery along with manager Catherine Devlin. Both managers are studying for their degree in Professional Childhood Studies at Glasgow University.


As a family run business and having the privilege of being part of our own children’s journey, from coming to Clever Clogs as babies to helping them prepare for their next big step of going off to school, we have gone through the process not only as managers of a children’s nursery but as mums.  This journey has helped us reinforce the importance of partnership and working together on every step no matter how small.  


Clever Clogs Nursery is registered with Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland and is inspected on yearly basis. 



In support of above we will ensure:

When children are treated with respect and kindness, they learn to respect others and to be kind, responsible and considerate.

We want our children to see life positively and to make good choices

We work closely, in partnership with parents and carers, to ensure that each child experience achievements and enjoys celebrating their success.

By having high expectations of their own and others' learning and behaviour, we are encouraging our children to be the very best they can be.

Stimulate active and enquiring minds.

An environment where all are welcome, where diversity and values are respected and Social Inclusion is promated at all times.

Children's views are heard and acted upon as we support children through their many experiences and transitions. We value the importance of family background and beliefs as the foundations to becoming successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.

Our Vision and Values support Getting It Right For Every Child.

We worked closely with our parents, children and staff at the beginning of our three year improvement plan to identify a vision tat sees us continuously develop and improve as we work in partnership and values that support our approach to achieving this vision.


An environment which creates opportunities for staff to undertake lead roles in a variety of contexts such as literacy, Numeracy, Health and Wellbeing, ICT. This brings about innovative practice and positive changes in children's experiences.

To work closely, in partnership with parents and carers, to ensure that each child achieves the very best they can
