My name is Toni. I am the Centre Director at Edinburgh New Town. I am committed to continuing the success of our happy and friendly nursery. I hold my SVQ 3 in Childcare, Learning and Development alongside my SVQ 4 Social Services and Young People. I am currently working towards my BA Childhood Practice at Edinburgh University. As  nursery Manager I aim for our setting to provided a purposeful, stimulating environment that is rich in learning opportunities, both indoors and outdoors.

The Staff here at Edinburgh New Town have an obvious passion, they show lots of care and attention to each individual child's needs. They create a caring and stimulating environment to promote children's development, learning and play. 

We would love for you to book a visit at our nursery, and have the chance to experience our nursery environment and learn more about the exciting things that we offer at New Town Nursery.
