Liberton Primary School had a lovely refurbishment of their nursery classroom in 2016, which was a continuation of the ‘interior design formula’ created by the City of Edinburgh Council for the 2015 new build nurseries.
After the success of the Duddingston, Wardie and Fox Covert nurseries and the research that was undertaken, City of Edinburgh Council Interior Design team was given the brief of carrying out a ‘2016 Summer Refresh’ of six existing nursery classrooms within Edinburgh. Liberton Primary School Nursery was one of them.
Here are some before and after photos.
“Staff, children and parents have noticed a big difference in our room. The new furniture and layout has enabled children to access resources much more independently and they are utilising every area regularly. In particular our story corner is now in constant use!
Before the refurb we had a very small room which felt very busy and now it feels much calmer. The materials and colours used give the nursery a more homely feel which definitely helps settle children.” – Jen Lorimer, Nursery Teacher
