Our team of professional, caring and supportive staff offer a wide variety of activities supporting the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence and we operate as an Edinburgh Council Partner Provider playgroup, which means that from the term after your child’s third birthday they are eligible for a council grant which covers a large proportion of the termly playgroup fee.

Being a community organisation means that we are managed and run by a committee of parents whose efficiency and dynamism is vital to the ongoing success of the playgroup. All parents are encouraged and expected to play a proactive role in helping the playgroup thrive and achieve its annual goals.

We operate a waiting list – children can be enrolled from birth and are eligible to start at playgroup when they are 2 years old. We currently have a daily capacity for 20 children and offer 5 morning sessions per week.


At Holy Corner we aim to provide a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment which is caring and responsive to our children as well as their parents and carers. Ensuring a balanced programme of play opportunities and relevant learning opportunities, we aim to nurture each of our children within the GIRFEC national approach, the vision of Realising the Ambition and with reference to the Curriculum for Excellence.
