A Little Glimpse into Our Musselburgh Kindergarten

You’ll love Musselburgh Nature Kindergarten:


Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside here at Musselburgh Nature Kindergarten! We have a large outdoor play area for our 2-5 year olds and a separate garden for our Babies. All our outdoor areas provide children with opportunities to get fresh air and have fun in a safe and secure environment. The children love playing in our outdoor area which has a mud kitchen, vegetable patch, sand pit and our man made hill which the children love to run up and down! As well as access to our fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area. We are lucky to have the River Esk right on our doorstep which is ideal for watching the ducks! Our youngest children are often seen out in our double buggies enjoying the fresh air, sights and sounds of the local community. We use high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery. We believe there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing – so we ask parents to provide their children with appropriate clothing for all types of weather, from wellington boots to sunglasses!

We are committed to being environmentally friendly, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place! We are a registered ECO-Nursery and are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
