Our Nursery

Welcome to Strawberry Hill Nursery, an established Early Years Education Centre in the heart of Edinburgh providing stimulating and inspiring childcare for children from 12 weeks to 5 years of age.

At Strawberry Hill Nursery we provide children with a homely, nurturing environment and encourage them to make friends, explore their curiosity and develop confidence through daily play, nursery routines and a wide range of special activities.

Our nursery is set within a stunning traditional Victorian villa which has been refurbished to the highest standards. Playrooms are carefully designed and resourced to provide tailored play areas appropriate for each age group, and we encourage children to make use of our fantastic outdoor play year-round to enjoy fresh air, exercise, growing vegetables and cooking up sludgy concoctions in our mud kitchen!

We are conveniently located near public transport links in The Grange, making us a great choice for families located in Newington, Marchmont, Prestonfield and beyond. We also have a large off-street car park at the back of the building allowing easy and safe drop off and collection.

Please contact us to learn more about our nursery or to arrange a visit, we’d love to meet you!
