A Beautiful and Welcoming Nursery in Edinburgh

At our bright and spacious nursery in Edinburgh, little ones aged 3 months to 5 years are provided with the best early years education and care to help them reach their developmental milestones in a caring and inspiring environment.

Rooms to Encourage Active Learning Through Play

Our enriching nursery in Edinburgh is set in a charming old stone-built farmhouse on the outskirts of the city, with beautiful rural surroundings. We make the most of our location by taking the children out on nature walks to explore the local wildlife.

Each of our fun and colourful rooms has been carefully designed to stimulate and expand little minds, with resources and toys to support development and encourage individual interests.

Enriching Learning Programmes

At our nursery in Edinburgh, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through enriching learning experiences thanks to our Growing Enhancement programmes. These unique programmes introduce your child to essential key skills in subjects including maths, reading, writing, science, art, IT, sports, and more.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, preschoolers participate in our Ready for School programme, which structures and brings into focus maths, reading, writing and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Additional Lessons and Specialist Rooms

To further enrich your child's nursery experience, they take part in a variety of language classes. We also have a dining room where the children eat together and learn about the importance of mealtimes, as well as a cosy and quiet sleeping room for peaceful naps.

Learning and Having Fun Outdoors

Our garden provides hours of endless fun and exploration for all the children, with age-specific areas providing the best resources and activities for each age group. We also have a gardening area where your child can plant their own vegetables, and lots of natural woodlands to explore.

The garden can be enjoyed in all weathers, so your child can make new discoveries come rain or shine.
