My nine month old son needs a nursery place for just one day a week but two nurseries have told us that they won't do this. Is it such an unusual request and has anyone else had any problems?

Also, I know what to ask/look for when I get there but don't know how to start narrowing down the search for a nursery - any recommendations for ones in the north west or center of edinburgh?

i think alot of nurseries don't do one day. they say it becuase they don't settle. i say it is because it is not worth it financially for them. dd's nursery do it but it is in north east edinburgh and has a waiting list.

My 12 month old has recently started nursery, just 2 mornings a week in Edinburgh. Similarly to yourself, there were a lot of nurseries who wouldn't accommodate this. In the end we found 3 who did and made a very easy choice between them. I think you definitely know when one feels right to you -and its nice when your instincts are confirmed to be right by the Care Commission report. The nursery is Waterfront Nursery at Telford College and they will take babies for 1 day. If the geography is right for you its worth a look. Also, have you looked at The Edinburgh Nursery and School Guide. It has a good list of nurseries and what sessions they do - although I found that in some instances it wasn't completely accurate.

Is it a particular day you need? I would have thought that some nurseries might have parents who work 4 days and take one day, I know someone who got 2 days at nursery on Monday and Friday because those were the most popular off days for other parents.

Does anyone know any good nurseries in the city centre near Waverley train station? I am thinking about The Royal Mile Nursery, does anyone have any experience of this one?

my dd's old nursery took children from 9 months and they were fantastic, you could have as many mornings as you wanted but it is only open from 9-15 till 11-45.
