The Cranley Approach

A free-flow set up

Each of our nurseries have been designed so that children can play, explore and learn with greater independence and fluidity. Free flow gives them the opportunity to develop at their own pace and develop essential decision-making skills.

Growing through play

At Cranley, fun and learning go hand in hand. We encourage curiosity and creativity, challenging their minds and feeding their imaginations on an exciting journey to school.

Our family culture

Cranley is family run and family focused. We always keep parents in the loop and involved in nursery life. You know your child best, that’s why we value parent input to provide the best environment for their growth.

Continuous learning

Development starts at birth and we continue to nurture it at Cranley. And we’re not just talking about the children. We strongly believe in investing in continuous staff training. That way, you can relax knowing our team bring the latest skills and are providing an excellent level of care.

Understanding our

Fees & Funding

To ensure continuity of care, children are required to attend a minimum of three sessions per week.

null

Nursery fees

Fees are due, and payable, one full month in advance. Our fees are based on a 51-week year, allowing for closure between Christmas and New Year. If your child is unable to attend a scheduled session for any reason, fees are still payable.
null

Pre-school funding

Working in partnership with Edinburgh City Council, we provide pre-school teaching in line with the national curriculum.

Parents of children between three and five years will be eligible for grant funding towards fees. Applying could give you up to £2,100 per year towards your childcare.

null

Childcare vouchers

We welcome all employer childcare vouchers, which could help you save even more money through reduced tax and National Insurance contributions. Ask your employer for details.
