Mission Statement

Our ethos is a “one step from home” creating a  family environment. We offer a safe but stimulating  environment where children are encouraged to develop their own identity through an understanding of the natural world around them. We practise a forest school approach within Edinburgh and in the wider countryside


  • To provide a safe stimulating and secure environment where children can develop confidence and self esteem at their own pace.
  • To promote a healthy lifestyle for children through home cooking, personal hygiene and allowing children to experience risk in a controlled environment
  • To create an environment that will stimulate a child’s curiosity and encourage enquiry
  • To use current national documents to taylor the practice and experiences of your children.
  • To work with families to create positive relationships where all opinions and views are respected and embraced.
  • To allow children to explore religious, cultural and social differences through the diversity of our families.
  • To utilise the local community to enhance the children’s experiences of the world around them.
  • To value and respect the staff and help them develop as individuals by providing training, resources and support to progress their careers.
  • To create and develop exciting play spaces both indoors and out to promote children’s natural curiosity, creativity and enquiry.
