Our Nursery

Strawberry Hill Nursery, Edinburgh

Strawberry Hill Nursery is located in Edinburgh, midway between Prestonfield and The Grange, on the corner of Minto Street and Blacket Avenue, at EH9 1RG. Our nursery is set within a stunning, traditional Victorian villa which has been refurbished to the highest standards.

Our nursery is served by excellent public transport links and is just a short drive from the city bypass and the wider motorway network. We have a large off street car park at the back of the building with access to the entrance allowing easy and safe drop off and collection.

Nursery Playrooms & Garden Area

Our nursery interior is carefully designed and has a number of rooms offering dedicated play areas for each age group. Rooms are well laid out and offer an excellent range of resources to support early learning and education. There is a splendid all year round outdoor area where our children enjoy regular fresh air, exercise, growing their own vegetables and learning across all areas of the Curriculum. Our mud kitchen is a huge success with our children having great times cooking up numerous sludgy concoctions for us to enjoy. Like us on Facebook to see our many creations!

Our nursery staff and children make fantastic use of the many surrounding facilities available in the local area and Edinburgh wide, including parks such as the Meadows, theatres, the local library and many more. There is a lively and energetic buzz to our playrooms where our children enjoy an extensive range of learning opportunities with staff committed to creating an atmosphere of care, respect, learning and fun.
