The nursery encourages parents to be actively involved in the nursery and their child’s first independent experiences. We operate a non-compulsory, volunteer parent rota where parents can share a skill or support staff members. Parents are asked to complete a PVG before volunteering in the nursery. Parents find this a rewarding experience, seeing their children grow and develop, making life long friends in the community. Free at point of access, Parents are encouraged to help fundraise and support the nursery in applying for grants. The nursery is run by a Parent Board.
Part-time and funded places are available for children aged 3-5 years.
The nursery is a Partner Provider with Edinburgh City Council (since January 2000).
