‘Free play’ Edinburgh nursery set for summer completion
January 20 2014
Designed with the needs of the under-fives at heart Arcadia Nursery will run daily from 07:30 till 18:00, with spaces reserved for local children – not just those whose parents are staff or students.
Built to be as spacious and bright as possible the building incorporates spaces for music-making, cookery and soft-play, all of which opens out onto extensive landscaped gardens through big glass doors in recognition of the importance of outdoor play.
These supervised gardens contain sensory-planting, mini allotments, a grass meadow and water play area as well as an elevated walkway and tree house to encourage exploration and play.
