We recognise that modern families have differing childcare needs. Accordingly we strive to be very flexible and offer a variety of childcare contracts to suit different needs including full time and part time contracts. 

We also offer a limited number of term time only places and a limited number of flexible shift pattern contracts.

We work in partnership with Edinburgh City Council and offer a number of 1140 hours funded places for children aged 3 and over.

Our daily rate for a morning session includes breakfast/morning snack and lunch, afternoon session rates include afternoon snack.


We offer a 5% discount for siblings, and a 5% discount for children who are full time, although only one of these discounts is available if a child falls into both categories. 

Extra Hour flexibility

Extra hours can be booked between 12 and 2pm, If you are booking a morning session which ends at 1pm, but require flexibility, you can book an extra hour from 1pm until 2pm. Similarly, if you are booking an afternoon session from 1pm, you can book an extra hour before the session starts from noon until 1pm, and this can include lunch if required.
