We offer excellent childcare services, making it easier to juggle parenthood and study.

In Summer 2014 the Day Nursery and Uni-Tots will move to a new home and become Arcadia Nursery.

The Day Nursery

The University of Edinburgh Nursery offers unrivalled facilities and care for young children and is open to all those living or working in the Edinburgh area.


Our second nursery, Uni-Tots, looks after children aged from two and a half to five years.

Funding is available for three and four year olds through our partnerships with local councils.
