Lynn Baxter

Nursery Manager

I have worked in childcare for 25 years, after completing my NC qualification in 1996.  I then began work as an apprentice in a private setting, completing my SVQ 3 in Social Services.  I then progressed from a qualified practitioner to a Deputy Manager for over 12 years. I started work at Pinocchio’s Eskbank as a senior practitioner and then transferred to Pinocchio’s Lasswade initially as a senior practitioner.  In October 2021 I became the nursery manager.

I am a mum to two girls and enjoy spending time with them when not at work.

I am professional, organised and have a good understanding of child development; continually updating my knowledge and understanding of all aspects of childcare.  I have completed Child Protection for managers and designated persons.  I am passionate about ensuring that I get it right for each child in my care.


Pinocchio's Children’s Nurseries are a group of 5 award winning children's nurseries across Edinburgh & Midlothian.

We currently have purpose built day nurseries in Eskbank, Lasswade, Penicuik, Heriot Watt and Gilmerton.
