What The Parents Have To Say...

We cannot thank you enough for the teaching and support you've given (our child) in the last 5 years. With your help she has grown into a confident, enquiring and joyful human and looks to be in the perfect place to begin her primary education. We would recommend Headstart…

P & T, Leith

I feel very fortunate that this level of care is provided in a setting so near to my home.

Ms M, Leith

My baby daughter has been at Headstart for just a few months and she always comes home stimulated and content. We are very happy with all aspects of the care given. We also enjoy bringing home her artwork - it is brilliant that the children get the opportunity to paint…

Mrs L, Leith

Headstart has a great set up with a creative use of space and inspired toys well beyond the usual range. The Nursery is very clean and bright and has a fantastic range of facilities which are added to on a regular basis.

Ms A, Leith

We are both very happy with the quality of care, primarily because our children are happy to be at Headstart. If I was a child I would want to go there.

Mr & Mrs S, Morningside
