New Town Nursery is the longest established private nursery in Edinburgh, situated in one of the city’s most attractive terraces in an elegant two storey Georgian building.

The nursery cares for babies from three months to children up to five-years-old and has five separate playrooms: the Baby Room, Toddler Room, Tweenie Room, Junior Room and Ante/Preschool Room. All staff hold relevant childcare qualifications, either HNC, SVQ, OR NNEB or are working towards their qualification.

New Town Nursery has a lovely, secure, rear adventure playground with an area for sand play and planting sessions in the Spring. They are also key holders to the beautiful private Dean Gardens, which has a wide playground for exploring, studying nature and for wider physical development.

The environment the nursery has created is happy and relaxed, one which will help towards boosting each child’s self confidence.
