With Figgate Park and Portobello beach on our doorstep we ensure the children get out and about as much as possible. Day trips are also a regular activity.


Accommodating children between 3 months and 5 years we have dedicated rooms for all of the children with the ability to play together in the garden and on walks/trips.


We look after children from 7:30am to 6pm and are proud to offer home cooked lunches – many of our garden grown vegetables are used in our healthy snacks. Our Early Years cook likes to get the children involved in the making of snacks and the children really enjoy baking together.


We pride ourselves on having some of the most experienced childcare teams in Edinburgh.
