Cherry Tree Nursery

Location: South Ayrshire 

SPA Partner: South Ayrshire Council

SPA Appointed Company: Portakabin


Cherry Tree Nursery was unsuitably accommodated over three separate locations at Dalmilling Primary School in Ayr. South Ayrshire Council wanted to consolidate the nursery provision into one new building. The project was a priority for South Ayrshire Council and had to be open for August 2019.

Cherry Tree Nursery is now housed within one building and has increased child places from 68 to 140. The project was delivered to a very tight programme as it needed to be completed prior to the children returning to school in August 2019.

Portakabin has provided a modern, bright, spacious nursery with a beautifully landscaped play space that children can access directly from their playrooms. The new facility has been very well received by pupils, staff parents and the wider community. The new nursery exceeded expectations and delivered excellent value for money whilst being delivered to a very challenging timescale.
