  Welcome to Bonnington House Nursery

Bonnington House Nursery and Pre-School is a family owned and managed day nursery, opening in Edinburgh in late 2011, offering a home from home for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We have over 18 years experience in Early Years Education and aim to establish a reputation for providing excellent care and education. We provide a friendly and child-centred approach to childcare, based in a professional, stimulating and loving environment.

Our nursery is securely located in a beautiful Georgian property within a large, tree-lined garden, on the edge of Victoria Park in Trinity, north Edinburgh. The building´s interior and gardens have been architecturally designed to create a spacious and stimulating learning environment that meets all the needs of growing children. The location offers easy access with safe drop off facilities, parent parking spaces, free on-street parking, and close proximity to the main bus routes in and out of the city.

We are situated next to Trinity Primary School and close to Fort Primary School and Holy Cross RC Primary School. At Bonnington House Nursery we aim to compliment and support the community spirit and education of the schools and we will work in partnership with Edinburgh City Council to ensure continuity of care and learning for all our children.

A Little bit of History of Bonnington House

The property, originally known as Bonnington House, comprises a two storey Grade C (S) listed Georgian house retaining many original features constructed in 1789 and extended and re-ordered in late 19th Century. The property has been used as a Children’s Centre for many years. Ground floor accommodation includes a fine entrance hall with staircase and metal balustrade, excellent example of a semi-circular wood paneled room to the rear, through room and five other rooms including a large fitted kitchen. First floor accommodation includes semi-circular room with feature buffet bar, large through room and seven other rooms. The property benefits from a large, mature, tree lined garden.




Why choose our nursery?

At Bonnington House Nursery we know that choosing childcare for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make in life.

Research has shown that children who attend nurseries are more confident, as they have mixed with other children from an early age, and can also go on to do better at school.

At Bonnington House Nursery we work hard to help your child have the best start in life through our ‘key worker’ scheme where your child has the opportunity to build a secure relationship with one main carer, and is nurtured, respected, included, safe and healthy. Through many opportunities to learn new skills and understanding through play, your child is active, responsible and achieving... ready to succeed in life!
