Term-time childcare at Edinburgh College

We know how busy life can get with young children, especially when you are studying. Waterfront Nursery is the perfect childcare option for a variety of reasons. Here’s our top five:

Waterfront Nursery is located at our Granton campus, joined onto the campus building. It’s so easy for you to drop your child off at nursery and head to class in time for a day at college.

We offer term-time places for our students which is not widely available at most private nurseries. If your timetable changes, the nursery will do as much as they can to support you (but be aware that they cannot guarantee availability for sudden changes).

Space and places available
We have 135 daily places for children between 0-5 years. The nursery includes: 2 baby rooms, a tweenie room and toddler room on our ground floor and upstairs we have our junior room, ante-pre and pre-school rooms, as well as a safe outdoor play area and additional activity areas.

Costs that work for you
Term-time childcare means you only have to pay for your child during term-time and will not be billed for a full year. This saves you money by not getting locked into contracts where you need to pay when you don’t need childcare. However, if you would like to book your child in for an extra session during the college holidays for any reason, we will be happy to arrange this for you.

Staff that care
Waterfront Nursery aims to be at the forefront of childcare in Edinburgh. We are committed to providing the highest quality childcare and early education, helping to ensure your child gets the best start in life. Our whole approach focuses on creating a fun yet educational environment for children to be in. If you run into any problems with funding, we will always try to help as much as we can and support you.
