Nile Nursery in Edinburgh

Welcome to Nile Grove Playgroup

The Nile Grove Community Playgroup is a registered charity playgroup based in Greenbank church in the Morningside area of Edinburgh. The playgroup has been running successfully since 1984!

Within a safe and friendly setting the playgroup provides the ideal environment for your child to take the first steps towards independence.

Children can enjoy playing in a large playroom with a variety of toys and activities which include singing, dancing, arts and crafts and messy play. To ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our children, activities are planned around developing their wellbeing, creativity and life learning skills and securing their individual learning. All children visit the sizeable garden area on a daily basis enjoying opportunities for fresh air and exercise.
