We have fully equipped play rooms to cater for all ages as well as a canopied outdoor segregated play area with artificial turf and rubber mats. We love our large and secure courtyard, which offers safe outdoor play facilities for drama, team games, gardening and gymnastics. Our new summerhouse is a designated laboratory for science experimentation, technology and nature study.
We like to take babies and children on frequent walks to the nearby Princes Street Gardens. We make much use of a range of local amenities for children’s outings; the museums, art galleries, library and train station, St Giles’ Cathedral, Princes Street Gardens, Holyrood Park and the castle, to name but a few. Contracted private coach hire or train is used for outings to rural amenities like Almond Valley Heritage Centre, Cramond Foreshore and Cammo Estate, where the children revel in outward bound pursuits.
All our staff are fully trained and experienced in the Curriculum for Excellence and early years’ education and development standards and guidelines.
