About

Our aim is to provide an extension of the safe, warm, loving and exciting environment given to children at home and by doing so, give confidence to parents or guardians leaving their child in our care.

At The Murrayfield Nursery, children are given the opportunity through carefully planned and structured activities and social interaction. We support our youngest children through the Birth-Three Framework. This ensures all our staff follow the same guidelines to provide an excellent standard of care. We effectively observe and monitor each individual child. The planning is carried out to further each child’s stage of development using the observations along with children’s interests and the parent/carers feedback.

The staff are there not only for the daily needs and care of the children, but also to observe their intellectual development and to give them reassurance if needed; to praise their achievements, as well as encourage respect for each other and the nursery environment.

As partner providers for The City of Edinburgh Council, parents of all eligible children attending the nursery will receive grant money from the council. In the pre-school room the children will have the opportunity to explore the 3-18 Curriculum for Excellence.

We believe the best way to educate is to make it fun through activities such as:

  • Numeracy and Mathematics
  • Expressive Arts
  • Technologies
  • Social studies
  • Religious and moral education
  • Science
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Literacy and English

We embrace each child’s creativity and all children are fully involved in their learning process.

The staff are all hand chosen, warm, caring and extremely devoted people. Staff have a wide range of various and relevant qualifications in childcare. Each and every staff member, including management go through a stringent process of selection and recruitment including regular Enhanced Disclosure Scotland checks.

A variety of charts, journals, notice boards and newsletters are used throughout the nursery to keep parents informed of what is or what has been available to each child throughout the day.

Daily accurate records will be kept for each baby detailing nappy changing, eating and sleeping patterns and a little comment about what they have been doing throughout their day.

Thank you again for your interest. We look forward to enrolling your child into The Murrayfield Nursery.
