Building on Success

After a successful career teaching at some of Scotland’s finest schools, Sally-Anne Peek set-up Peekaboo Nursery School in Edinburgh in 1998. Full of passion, energy and ideas, she never stops dreaming-up new ways to engage inspire and educate our children.

Outside and in, there are loads of planned activities to stimulate and entertain. With the perfect blend of the latest teaching techniques and traditional family values, we make sure our kids are properly prepared for the future.


Our thinking

Learning really is child’s play at Peek-a-boo. That’s because we believe that  encouraging what comes naturally (playing) is the best way for kids to learn about the world, how they relate to their surroundings and to other people.

Kids are naturally full of questions and wonder. We don’t just promote curiosity; we help to provide answers in a safe and creative environment. Our children learn valuable life skills such as independence, friendship, creativity, perseverance, team-work and problem-solving. This helps them to get the most out of their time with us at the Nursery.



We can’t offer the best Nursery School / Childcare without the best team to back it up. So we make sure we take good care of everyone, including our staff.

Our Edinburgh Nursery Team don’t just excel at teaching, play-leading and dressing-up, they really love it; and it shows. Being a great place to work means we get to take our pick from the very best applicants for every position.

Yummy, healthy food!

We put a lot of thought into snack times at Peek-a-boo Nursery. We encourage the kids to experiment with new tastes and textures, so they quickly develop a healthy appetite for good, nutritious food including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Our nursery meal times may often be hectic 🙂 but they are always happy, social occasions, where companionship and good table manners go together.
