Claylands Nursery is in a highly secure and tranquil countryside setting situated on a non-working farm, well away from the dangers of traffic, fumes or houses, and set in extensive secure paddocks and gardens for the children to enjoy.
Our pre-school is run by a qualified primary teacher who is experienced in outdoor nursery.
We provide 1140 free hours of pre-school education to Edinburgh and West Lothian children.
Our ethos is to provide experiences in nature in our fantastic and large gardens. Our playrooms are extensive offering the children freedom to move and explore. Our playrooms are stocked with natural resources reflecting research which again and again shows the benefits of open ended natural play.
Research shows that children do not benefit from the overuse of technology, which can actually lead to stress. Our environment inside and out truly provides the best start.
