Stepping Stones Edinburgh is a small and warm environment, where your child can flourish and feel at home from home. We have proudly retained an amazing group of staff, which promotes continuity in your child’s development and also enables them to form strong bonds.
My child is very happy attending nursery and the activities at nursery, interaction with staff and other children are positively contributing to my child's development
We find Stepping Stones - approachable, personable, communicative, caring, flexible and friendly.
All of our children have been at Stepping Stones- we have been extremely pleased of the care they have all received and the foundation the nursery has provided for their social and educational development.
Instead of splitting our days into morning and afternoon sessions, we are delighted to offer flexible sessions by the hourly rate. (16 hours minimum per week). These flexible sessions are of particular value to parents who work flexible shifts.
As a registered eco-nursery we are extremely environmentally conscious and have designated areas both indoors and out for children to participate in recycling We currently have a Silver Award and are working towards achieving our Green Flag status. Watch this space…
Our flexible sessions mean that we charge on an hourly basis per child. All fees are paid weekly in advance. Two weeks notice or payment in lieu is required. Please note that missed sessions will be charged accordingly.
First Child £4.90 | Siblings £4.40
Hourly rates include Mid Morning and Afternoon snaks. All parents are entitled to one free week per year.
Our vision for all our children and young people within our centre, is for them to become confident individuals and achieve their full potential. It is our aim for them to live safely and in good health with the right kind of support, as and when needed. We will create an environment of the highest quality to provide our children with skills for life.
The nursery is conveniently situated in the heart of south Edinburgh, just off the Meadows. The building itself is located at 1 Chalmers Crescent which ideally located for local trips to the parks, museums and libraries. Access via bus is easy with several nearby stops.
