Amber Kindergarten (ages 3 to 6)

Amber Kindergarten is for children aged 3 - 6 and runs term time only in line with Aberdeen City Council term dates. 

Based on Waldorf educational approaches with close alignment to the principles of the Curriculum for Excellence, we have outstanding outdoor resources which include forests, farm animals, stables, gardens and orchards.
