St George's Nursery Fees

Part-funding through a partnership with Edinburgh Council

We are currently an Early Learning and Childcare Partner Provider for the City of Edinburgh Council. We will remain in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council for session 2020/21 and nursery funding will remain in place for this academic year.

Funding is available for all eligible children from the beginning of the school term following their 3rd birthday.  The grant amount (variable depending on length of term) will be deducted from termly bills.

As the Scottish Government assesses the proposed schedule for increased funded childcare provision we will continue to monitor and review the status of our partnership. Our priority is always to maintain our high-quality standard of care and early level education and any future decisions taken will be to uphold this ethos. We will endeavour to ensure that our nursery community is consulted and informed ahead of any changes to our partnership status with the City of Edinburgh Council.
