Sunflower Family Nurture Centre was officially opened in May 1977 and for the first year, was linked to the West School. In 1978 the official link with the West School was broken and Lochgelly Nursery became a separate school in its own right.


Within the nursery are two large play rooms, a smaller withdrawal room and a Parent’s Area. There is also a large outdoor area which is used all year round and a range of equipment is available for building, gardening and physical play.

We provide pre-school education for 3 & 4 year old children, offer wrap around care for children with working and studying parents, when possible and extended day places for children and families with social needs.

The nursery has strong links with the local community and also benefits from being part of Lochgelly New Community Schools. We actively encourage and welcome parent’s involvement in a variety of formal and informal ways.

Please contact the Headteacher if you would like to visit or discuss any aspect of our school.
