Childcare options for 0-4 year olds

Nursery and other childcare providers play a really important role in the development of little minds and bodies. It fires wee imaginations, opens up a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities, and helps children form friendships that can be carried into primary school and beyond.

Your children are already getting lots of good learning at home but spending time in childcare can top it up. And here’s the really good bit - all 3 and 4 year olds, and around a quarter of 2 year olds can get up to 600 hours of childcare, funded by the Scottish Government. And it’s about to get even bigger and better.
