The Nursery is accommodated in a listed building situated on the University's Old Aberdeen campus. A large family house and adjacent smaller house have been connected internally and adapted to create one childcare facility for three "departments", divided by age, namely 0-2, 2-3 and 3-5 years. There is a large play area of grass and tarmac which is fenced and ringed by mature trees, and three small areas have been cultivated for flower and vegetable patches.
The three departments each have a spacious playroom, a dining/craft room, toilet area and cloakroom. The first floor of the main building, used by the 0-2 age group, also has a sleep room, utility room and staff room. The ground floor of the main building is used by the 2-3 group and also houses the kitchen and laundry. The 3-5 year old children use the acoommodation (on two floors) of the extension.
