Meet our nursery manager, Emma Van Rooyen

“Hi, I am the nursery manager at Nightingale Nursery. I moved from London to Scotland in Autumn 2019 to take on this role and I am enjoying it hugely. I have worked in nurseries since 1984, and have been the manager of various nurseries in London for the last 20 years.

“The best thing about working in a nursery is the children and families. It is wonderful to see the children develop on a daily basis with our support. We also love to build relationships with the families. No two days are ever the same.

“Nightingale Nursery is a wonderful place to work and as it is a small nursery we can really concentrate on nurturing young minds. It is bright, modern and airy with three separate rooms for different age groups and we also have our own enclosed outdoor area. We are located in a fantastic area in Edinburgh’s Quartermile within very close walking distance of The Meadows where the children go on a daily basis. Our staff are professional, friendly, dedicated, qualified and experienced to a very high level and always put your child first.”
