Our Vision

We provide a safe, comforting environment which is homely and flexible to meet the individual needs of all our children and families.

 

Babies – Rainbow Room

We have two large airy rooms for our babies, each room can hold 9 children and are adapted for each individual child's age and stage of development. Staff work closely with the pre-birth to three curriculum to support our under twos in these early stages of development.

 

Toddlers – Sunshine Room

This is a large bright room that leads onto the conservatory where the children can enjoy creative play. This room can hold 17 children and has its own access to the large enclosed back garden. Qualified staff work with all relevant guidance and curriculum to support our toddlers in play experiences to achieve their goals and explore their interests to make sense of the world around them.

 

Young Learners – Shiny Star Room

The Young learners can hold 36 children between 3 large rooms where the children can free flow between. Their loose parts room has direct access to the enclosed garden. Qualified staff in this room work closely with the curriculum for excellence with a focus on mathematics, literacy and health and wellbeing to both support and challenge children to progress and achieve in their learning working towards preparation for moving into primary 1.

Garden

Our community 

Our nursery is situated in the Blackhall area of Edinburgh surrounded with fantastic opportunities for outdoor learning such as local walks and parks, we regularly visit the local care homes to take part in a range of activities and using the local libraries and shops. Our children enjoy exploring the local beach to look for wildlife & collect loose parts.
