Welcome to Compass Playgroup!


Compass Playgroup offers a safe, happy and enriching environment where young children can gain the immeasurable benefits of learning through play.


We are located in the Dean Park Primary Pre-School Centre, in the heart of Balerno. Our premises provide an excellent venue for our children, aged 2-5 years, to participate in a wide variety of activities based around the Scottish Executive Curriculum Framework.


  • We operate Mondays to Fridays (school term time only) 8.55am-11.40am and have capacity for 18 children each session. 


  • We also operate an Early Drop Off (8.30-8.55am), Lunch Club (11.45 - 12.30) and transfer service to Dean Park Nursery daily.


  • In addition we also offer Afternoon sessions, (Mondays to Thursdays, 11.30am to 3.00pm) for children in their pre school year.


Fees are listed on the Sessions and Fees page.


Compass Playgroup is a registered charity and is run by an elected committee, comprised of parents and guardians of children attending the playgroup. We are members of the Scottish

Pre-School Play Association and are regulated by the Care Inspectorate. 


The Care Inspectorate graded us "very good" for quality of care, support and environment in October 2018.
