Hame Fae Hame Ltd

                                    Childcare for children aged 1 to 12 years

Welcome to Hame Fae Hame

Our well staffed nursery is well established, being an essential part of the local Shetland community. We believe in giving children the best possible start in life, and to that end our day nursery focuses on each child as an individual, encouraging them to learn and grow in ways that attend to their particular needs.

Our staff are caring, professional and extremely well versed in child safety, giving you peace of mind in those times where the busiest parts of your schedule leave you in need of child care.

Opening Hours

We're open every weekday, all day, for your convenience.

Monday -Friday 0800 - 1800

(We will be CLOSED Monday 23rd December 2019 to Friday 3rd January 2020 inclusive)

Safe & Secure

Our nursery is safe and secure, and we pride ourselves on our ethos of making learning and personal development fun and rewarding.

Every child is special to us, and we'll always do everything we can to help them embrace each new wonder filled step that childhood brings.

About Us

We believe that any profession should be served with the best possible level of care and skill, and this is especially true when it comes to attending to the welfare of future generations.

By maintaining a high staff to child ratio, we make sure that there's always plenty of supervision, and a helping hand wherever it's needed.

Our Premises

We moved into our new premises in 2012 and it's made such a difference.  We have much more space for the children to play and are able to split them into suitable age categories.

We also have a fantastic outdoor area which we try to take advantage of as often as possible.

What Other's Say About Us

As working mams, having flexibility means we’re not paying for any hours we’re not needing so going back to work still pays off even when you’ve got a couple of bairns.
Flexible pick up and drop off times and paying to the nearest 15mins rather than hour means you can spend more time with you kids if you happen to get an early or later start at work.


Free settling in visits means you’re entirely comfortable taking as much or little time as you or your bairns needs and the free drop off and collections from the school and nursery enhances transitions immensely.
The flexibility adds to the overall relaxed and homely atmosphere and contributes to the bairns feeling so settled there- it really is a home fae home and bairns view staff as friends or surrogate aunties!

Hame Fae Hame is the best nursery! Kaye and the team really manage to create a home from home experience, even as the nursery gets bigger, that caring environment remains.  They know our son so well and have invested in his development from day one.  

He learns new things every day in an environment  where he feels safe and encouraged to do so.  He feels at home.  The staff take time to understand him, are genuinely interested in him, and meet his needs in the most personalised way: he feels special and valued.  

The flexibility offered is totally brilliant and enables us as a family to juggle busy life with less stress.  We are very happy! Thank you guys!!

Hame Fae Hame is an integral part of our lives and has been for the past 4 years.

We've always felt at ease leaving our children there, who go in happy and leave happy.  Staff are extremely welcoming and caring and the facility is always flexible and accommodating .   We know that as parents, we can be a bit obsessive about things like our children having naps, length of naps, dietary requirements (and sometimes even bowel movements!) and the staff at Hame Fae Hame always strive to work with you on meeting those needs and the relay of information.  

An absolutely excellent facility and service that I would recommend to anyone with children.  They make a huge different to all our lives.
