Dreghorn Pre School and Crèche is a small, community-run, not-​for-profit provider of early years childcare in Edinburgh.

We are a friendly crèche for children aged 2 - 3 and pre-school children aged 3 - 5 years.

We are housed in two inter-linked modified former army quarters on the Dreghorn Estate off Redford Road.

All children are welcome, and we accept children from the age of two.

We have 8 spaces for children aged 2 years and have 16 spaces for children in the pre-school rooms.

We are a registered charity and are run by a Board of Trustees which is made up of parents, military staff and members of the local community.​​​


We were established in 1983 to provide a 'playgroup'-style childcare service for children whose parents were serving in the military community in Dreghorn and Redford.

​Since then we have grown into a pre-school and crèche, and are now an Edinburgh City Council registered provider of Early Years Learning, offering funded and non-funded places to children from across the local community.

We serve both the local civilian and military communities, and operate on a not-for-profit basis which means we are able to provide the very highest standard of childcare at the lowest possible cost for our parents.
