Early Years Virtual Tour

View our 360 Degree Virtual Tour  of the purpose built Kindergarten and Playgroup.

Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to stream in. Spacious undefined areas employ the imagination, develop creativity and encourage meaningful play. A kitchen in each of the rooms brings a homely feel to the holistic environment; whilst the child-friendly architecture is complimented by the natural play props – from silk veils, wooden kitchen, Waldorf dolls, cooking utensils and open-ended playthings.


A walk around the enclosed gardens of the Early Years, set within a protected conservation area of Edinburgh, takes in sandpits, swings, water play areas, climbing trees, a bonfire area, composting, vegetable plots, woodwork benches, bird feeders, hidden den areas and places for the children to create their own natural playground. Wildlife are in abundance.


Watch our short film (2012) on the Early Years. 2020 film – postponed.
