About Us

North Edinburgh Childcare first opened its doors to children in the spring of 1997.

The organisation developed in response to an identified need for affordable, flexible childcare in North Edinburgh that would enable local parents and carers to access increased opportunities for work, training or education.

A group of local women campaigned over a number of years for the creation of a custom built (state of the art) childcare facility. In the Spring of 1997, the dream became a reality.

Since that time, our organisation has gone from strength to strength and grown into the multi-stranded operation that we are today.  Our service has separate divisions offering pre-school care in the centre, out of school care for 180 children in 6 local primary schools.

We are also very proud of our training service that offers a range of accredited and non accredited training, again working locally and throughout the city.

Recent feedback from the Care Inspectorate applauded our high standards and continuous development of a child-centred approach.

More detailed information about all of these services is contained in the relevant pages.
