PreSchools and Playgroups for Edinburgh

Cameron House Nursery School

Cameron House Ave, Edinburgh EH16 5LF, UK – 0131 667 5117

My son goes to this nursery and the staff are amazing and the most kind people you could meet. If you have a problem they sit down and talk to you. I would definitely recommend this nursery to everyone


Greengables Nursery School

8 Niddrie House Gardens, Edinburgh EH16 4UF, UK – 0131 669 9083

Great nursery

St Margarets Nursery

10 Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh EH16 5NE, UK – 0131 667 0778

I have worked at St Margarets for several years and love working there. The staff are great and we all work well as a team. The large garden is amazing and the children thrive outside as well as inside. The job is demanding but very rewarding and I have formed very good bonds with the children and the parents 💕

St Margaret’s Nursery is a brilliant place to work I have been there nearly 2 years. I am part of an amazing team and they have helped me grow in confidence. I’m about to start my SVQ Level 4 management have been really supportive and encouraging me to take the next step to work towards level 4. I love working in the baby room and seeing them grow and progress I definitely recommend this nursery.

After School Care

Skool Is Out Ltd

11 Barclay Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 4HP, UK – 0131 659 7771

My son has attended the afterschool club and holiday club through Skool is Out in Bruntsfield. He has really enjoyed his time there and the staff are fantastic. Very enthusiastic and wide range of activties are offered.

An excellent after school club, really good people and very well-organised. My litte one has a great time there.

Suffolk House Nursery Day Care

10 Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh EH16 5NE, UK – 0131 667 0778

From the minute you enter the bright, modern and spacious reception area, you feel like this is somewhere that encourages learning, and has been designed and purpose-built to support that. No pokey dark corridors or dodgy conversions, all the rooms are well equipped (with all the essentials neatly packed away out of little ones' reach!) leaving the floorspace free for play. A range of stimulating activities, their own soft play room, plus huge garden area (a real premium in the city centre). The online learning journal means grandparents can login and see our child develop, even from 300+ miles away. They have amazingly varied hot meals so she only ever needs a light tea before bed - perfect for working parents. They are attentive to her every need, notice when she is under the weather, have supported her through many key learning and development stages and keep setting new goals for the staff to work towards with her. I would thoroughly recommend both the building and the staff.

Liberton High School

328 Gilmerton Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7PT, UK – 0131 664 7514

As a student at LHS I don't understand the bad reviews it's not a bad high school yeah it has a bad reputation but it's still a not a bad school. Edit: it’s a good school, polite students mostly. I’m moving into my final year of the school have been at the school since S1, can say some bad things about it but not a lot. Yes some students are rude but not all. All we want is are school to have people give it a try, that’s all. Over all I’m just saying take the review from a student not a parent who has a child in this school. Thank you 🙂

Liberton is a good school. It may have it's faults like other schools., but it has some of the finest pupils and teachers, that I have had the honor to know.

Edinburgh Dance School

Inch Park Community Sports Club, 227 Gilmerton Rd, Edinburgh EH17 8DU, UK – 07703 483809

I love the classes offered by Edinburgh dance school! I first approached Felicity at wedding show 7 years ago. Her friendly, professional and bubbly down to earth personality won us over straight away! From then on we went to group ballroom classes for the more novice dancers and then booked private one to one dance classes to learn a personalised routine for our wedding dance. I now have a girl that has just turned 2 1/2 years old and I have started her in twinkle stars ballet which she loves. The class is just the right length of time to hold her attention and the teachers are amazing at keeping their attention.

Summerhall 1, Summerhall Pl, Edinburgh EH9 1PL, UK – 07824 152954

Venture English is a beautifully located, cosy and friendly place where you can improve your language skills quickly and easily, thanks to their personalized approach. The lessons with Lorna were really enjoyable and tailored for my language exam needs. Lorna is a teacher who has a true calling, you can rely on her! Highly recommended :)

Venture English is a small school in Edinburgh where I studied English for two weeks last August. I don't know if my English has improved much in such a short time, but it has been a pleasant experience. Both teachers and management are excellent and make you feel very comfortable.

Private Tutors

Kip McGrath Tuition Centre, Edinbugh Marchmont

125 Marchmont Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1HA, UK – 0131 610 6110

My son was in S3 studying for Nat 5 when he fell behind in maths due to different extracurricular commitments. Excellent tutors at Kip McGarth have helped him catch up but also further improve understanding of the topics that he thought he knew well! This improvement was reflected in his test results. He so enjoys the lessons that he continues to go over the holidays! The atmosphere is very friendly but encouraging and the staff is kind and helpful.

Our boys (P6) have made an incredible progress since they started lessons (both English and Math) at Kip McGrath six months ago. One of them has moved from the bottom group in math to the top group within six weeks of attendance. His has become much more confident and has flourished in other subjects as a result. The other son, who was already good in math but clearly unchallenged in school (found his school math extremely boring) is now doing S2 math (confidently). The best thing of all is that they cannot wait for their next lesson at Kip - they are motivated and enthusiastic about learning. As parents, we could not have asked for more. Thank you Indy!
