Welcome to our nursery…
At The Edinburgh Nursery the experience of our staff and their length of service with the company is something of which we are incredibly proud. We are confident that as a parent you will value the stability and knowledge of our practitioners and the skills they bring to your child's Early Years education and care. We are committed to staff development and CPD training and all our staff are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council. Registration ensures staff’s professionalism, enthusiasm and genuine interest in the development and promotion of quality childcare.
Our Baby Nursery caters for children aged 6 weeks to 18 months and provides a very secure home from home environment for our youngest children. The Baby Nursery is run on the same policies, ethos, aims and principles of the Nursery and Preschool but our staff are Baby specialists. We aim to provide a very supportive and gentle environment where children can be introduced to their first social experiences away from home. We record progress, planning and milestones through children's Individual Personal Learning Profiles.
Our Nursery is for children aged around 18 months – 3 years and follows the Pre-birth to three curriculum. We use personalised planning to ensure that we deliver a child centred learning journey. With the use of learning journals, we are able to report back to parents using an app on your phone. Our staff team have a wealth of experience and length of service and a passion for play.
We enjoy yoga, music and dance and creative process art!
Our preschool celebrates 32 years of educating children and we follow the Curriculum for Excellence for a seamless transition to primary school.
We welcome children from our Nurseries and Baby Nursery who gain automatic enrolment but also new families who are keen to explore preschool education in the term after their child's 3rd birthday.
We are a partner provider Nursery and can access preschool funding from the government for your child's preschool year and ante preschool time with us.
Our pre-schoolers gain the confidence to explore their learning at their own pace, with appropriate challenge and support. The children are heavily involved in evaluating their own learning, discussing their thoughts and knowledge and participating in activities to ensure that they are effective contributors, capable citizens and confident learner.
