Additional information

MAKI Pups is Mid Argyll’s first fully outdoor nursery. Set against the backdrop of Kilmory Castle, The Walled Gardens and its woodland provide a fantastic environment for children to explore learn and grow.

We offer fully funded ELC hours as well as private wraparound care. 

We have a team of practitioners who are not only experienced in caring for children but they also have a wider range of skills that make our service as unique as our setting.
