Craigmillar Early Years Centre is a City of Edinburgh Council establishment, and is part of Children and Families. The centre offers a range of services, including group care for children aged up to 8 for both fee-paying and supported families. The centre also offers a range of groups and community initiatives for families with young children.

Craigmillar EYC has a warm and friendly atmosphere. It is wonderfully designed for the kids, and has rooms for both babies and toddlers to play in, a sheltered outdoor area that features an adventure playground with a shoot, a tunnel, a sandpit and lots of outdoor toys.

Craigmillar EYC offers holiday activities, parents groups, baby massage, PEEP groups, bookbug events and many other activities and sessions to support the needs of children and families in our community.

Activities including song time, snack time, painting/drawing/playdo/reading time.

So much to do the kids love it.

It is a drop-in centre for all children from 0-5 years and their carers.

It has a principal teacher and a nursery nurse so a great way to get wee ones used to a nursery atmosphere which makes the transition easier for them.
