Having found out from friends who were parents that the waiting lists for nurseries in Edinburgh was CRAZY long I set about looking for nurseries when I was 6 months pregnant. I lived and worked in Leith so I was looking for a nursery in this neck of Edinburgh's woods. I visited a few nurseries and for me one of the really important factors was outdoor space. I lived in a flat on a main road and I really wanted my little girl to be able to go out and play like I did as a girl. So, when I stumbled upon Forbes Nursery, I fell in love. The nursery is placed opposite Leith Links in what I assume was previously a very very large home / guest house. The nursery is deceptively huge - there are only 4 doors and stairs leading off the entrance way, but it is very tardis like - rooms leading from other rooms. Plenty of space indoors for little tots. An abundance of indoor activities to keep them busy and developing. BUT the clincher - the garden is ENORMOUS! Boasting half an acre of land with lots of little sections, a secret garden, a vegetable patch that the children help to plant, various play park areas, again sectioned for different ages and stages. Lots of outdoor toys - kid heaven! Oh the fun and adventures I could have had in that garden if I was a child again! My daughter is now 2 and has been going for over a year - she loves it - she doesn't want to leave. The carers are so friendly, helpful, caring and informative. My daughter's development has come on leaps and bounds since starting, she's confident, happy, bright and has made so many friends. We have now moved out of the area, but I wouldn't dream of changing her nursery - I cannot recommend this place highly enough!

My 2 year old daughter has been attending Stoneyhill playgroup since January 2012. She looks forward to going every weekday morning and affectionately knows it as "Elliot's house" named after one of the key members of the playgroup team. I cannot recommend it enough, providing both a stimulating and caring environment that you can trust.

A wonderful school with a great team of teachers. We are delighted to be sending our son to school here. 😃
I think this was Portobello Elementary school in 1955-56. I attended 1st and second grade there. Does anyone know?

I was keen to let people know how pleased I was with this agency when I saw the last ladies review. I know they are a very busy agency as they are highly recommended. I phoned, left a message and someone phoned me back within 5 mins, I find them to be very reliable friendly and professional and always recommend them as I have had experience of another agency.
I have just used this agency to find my second nanny (my hours have changed hence the new nanny) I think they are the best out there, very personal touch, Impeccable taste in nannies, can be hard to speak to Leigh at times as she is so busy with clients but worth the wait, once interviews start very attentive out of hours and weekends, not pushy, The thing that I like is that the nannies I've interviewed speak really highly of this agency. Thanks again.

I love Duddingston primary because it's a really good school and provides good education. I am one of the pupils there and I have really enjoyed my time there.
Labour's Jeremy Corbyn tells head teachers he will plug a £3bn gap in school funding in England.
Introducing a four-and-a-half day week in England would be a last resort, head teachers say.
Head teachers express concerns that exam results can be manipulated by politicians and their agencies.
The National Association of Head Teachers backed moves to reject a new wave of grammar schools.

I would just like to say a big thank you to Jackie for her expertise and skills in teaching my daughter. She tutored her in a comfortable and relaxed way that allowed my daughter to pass all her exams with confidence. I would definitely recommend Jackie as a tutor.
