Welcome to Happy Days Nursery Dalkeith

Happy Days Nursery is a family-run organisation based in Dalkeith town centre, founded in 1992, offering full and part-time placements for children aged between 0 and 12 years old. We promote a caring and stimulating environment for each developmental stage and take pride in maintaining the highest possible standards of care.

We also work in partnership with Midlothian’s Education Department to offer grant-assisted places for 3-5 year olds.

We are proud to run a caring, ‘home from home’ nursery whereby the children are happy, content and benefit from our stimulating facilities and well-qualified team. Our number one priority is to ensure the happiness and safety of each child and to promote their learning and development. We follow the Curriculum for Excellence and Pre-birth to Three principles to ensure that every child has access to a wide range of experiences to meet their individual needs.

Our Vision and Values

  • To ensure the highest standard of care for your child is provided, via a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment.
  • To ensure a varied and balanced curriculum where each child’s specific needs are met and their learning and development is our key focus.
  • To ensure that our standards and those of Her Majesties Inspectorate of Education (HMIe) and the Care Inspectorate are maintained and developed.
