Welcome to Loretto Nursery where we provide stimulating & inspiring childcare for children aged from birth to five years.

Based in Musselburgh alongside the lovely river Esk, our nursery is within easy access of both Loretto Junior and Upper Schools, and just minutes away from the town center by foot.

At Loretto Nursery we place children at the heart of everything we do and are committed to providing a learning environment where children feel valued and have great fun with a range of activities each week. We have a fantastic staff team who nurture close relationships with families and children in our care.

We provide an engaging atmosphere to encourage every child’s development in a caring and family-orientated environment. Playrooms within our recently refurbished nursery are light and airy, generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence.

Each of our playrooms have access to large outdoor play areas, offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning opportunities across all areas of the curriculum. Staff and children also make use of our fantastic seaside setting, with lots of walks and outdoor play.
