Bruntsfield Nursery and Preschool provides care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef.
During 2019 our nursery had a total refurbishment. The entire nursery was redecorated and we invested heavily in new resources to set up the children’s playrooms. New & improved environments were also created to include a bigger, new sensory play room for the children to discover
