Our purpose built, spacious nursery opens out onto a large natural outdoor area providing children with daily opportunities to explore the natural world around them. Both our garden and Nature Kindergarten area offers motivating and varying opportunities for learning. All aspects of the curriculum are explored outside and the wonder and curiosity experienced will serve to enhance and stimulate each child’s learning.
Our highly qualified, experienced and motivated team of Early Years Practitioners work alongside our specially trained and qualified Nursery teacher. Staff have an excellent knowledge of childhood pedagogy and our high adult to child ratio ensures that each child’s experience is tailored to their own learning needs and next steps.
Children attend specialist music and French classes and have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of extra curricular clubs within their nursery day. Our extensive and broad learning experiences offers children the opportunity to learn through play based learning as well as more structured group time experiences.
Cargilfield Nursery is in partnership with Edinburgh City Council. This qualifies children for pre-school partnership funding, depending on the child’s date of birth.
