Pilrig Children’s Nursery is a small family-run nursery situated in Pilrig Street, just opposite Pilrig Park. We care for children from 6 months to 5 years and we are in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council for the provision of funded places for 3 to 5 year olds.

Jen Hegarty has operated Pilrig Children’s Nursery since it opened in 2014 and previously another nursery in the Meadows area of Edinburgh from 2004 to early 2019. Jen is a qualified primary school teacher and works alongside an experienced and enthusiastic team who are all dedicated to providing high quality early learning and childcare. All of our staff are either fully qualified or working towards their qualification.

We place a high emphasis on child centred play and outdoor learning with regular trips to various destinations as well as Forest Schools excursions to St Marks Community Woodland and Pilrig Park. We have a large & well stocked garden, providing an adventurous place for young children to explore, play and learn. With easy access to the garden from our bright & sunny playrooms, the children have endless opportunities for high quality play and learning.
