Links Nursery in Duns

If you are looking for a nursery place for your child, please get in touch by calling our manager Debbie on 01361 882377 or by emailing her at If you are a current parent, then our management team will be in touch with you shortly.

As you may be aware Links Duns has remained open throughout the COVID19 pandemic, doing vital work as a hub for the children of key workers. Following the Scottish government’s announcement and the issuing of guidance and requirements for the return of other children, our team have been working very hard to prepare the nursery for reopening.

We have been developing new operational safety guidelines. Health and safety have always been important for the care of our children but have assumed even more importance during the pandemic. We want to reassure you that we are taking every step to ensure that your children remain safe and well whilst still enjoying nurturing and stimulating play and learning experiences.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do let us know.


Links Nursery provides quality childcare, and a safe, nurturing learning environment for children aged 0 to 5. Our aim is to ensure all our children are welcomed, valued and cared for to the highest standard through supportive, nurturing and trusting relationships with their key person and other staff. We believe that the nursery experience is an important opportunity for your child to develop, grow and learn through a variety of exciting and challenging indoor and outdoor experiences in the company of other children.

Housed in an airy traditional stone building on Newtown Street in the heart of the Borders town of Duns, our nursery can accommodate a total of 36 children in our two spacious, well equipped children’s playrooms. We also have a lovely, large and inviting garden area to the rear. Serving Duns, the surrounding towns and villages and the wider Borders area, we are a very flexible nursery and offer a variety of childcare contracts including full time, part time, shift pattern and term time only options.  We also offer a pick up and drop off service to the local school nursery. Our opening hours are 7.30am until 6pm. We have also gained council partnership provider status, and offer funded places for children aged 3 and over.

Although Links is new to the town of Duns, it is part of a well-established, stable, and high quality group of 4 nurseries in Duns, Musselburgh, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. If you are looking for a quality early years nursery placement for your child, why not contact our manager Debbie Rendall on 01361 882377 to arrange to pop in for a tour of the nursery or to have chat about what we have to offer? We look forward to welcoming you and your family.
