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, and we are also able to offer some very flexible childcare contracts including full-time, part-time, and shift pattern. We also have a limited number of term time only places. Please feel free to ask about our discounts for full-time children and for siblings. We also work in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council to provide 1140 hours funded places for children aged 3 years and over.
