Housed in two spacious, airy, modern buildings with generous gardens, and situated in leafy Greenbank, a quiet residential area near Morningside in South Edinburgh, City and Little City Nursery can accommodate up to 143 children aged 0 to 5 years. Our lovely nursery strives to provide the very best quality childcare and preschool education for all our children. Notwithstanding our size,  you can still expect a warm personal welcome for your child and an individualized nurturing approach tailored to your child's needs. Our aim is to ensure all our children feel valued, safe and cared for to the highest standards.

We serve the areas of Morningside, Fairmilehead, Oxgangs, Buckstone, Craiglockhart, Blackford, Braids, Bruntsfield, Grange, Firhill and Slateford as well as the wider Edinburgh area, and some of our children also come from further afield in the Lothians. We are open from 7.30 am until 6pm for your convenience. We are able to offer some flexible childcare contracts including full-time and part-time, and we also have a limited number of term time only places. We also work in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council to provide 1140 hours funded places for children aged 3 years and over.

If you are looking for a quality early years nursery placement for your child, why not contact our manager Cara Ross on 0131 446 0088 to arrange to pop in for a tour of the nursery, or to have a chat about what we have to offer? We look forward to welcoming you and your family.
