1140 nursery child gives thumbs up

How we are improving our nurseries and building new ones

We're already working really hard to ensure that young children will be able to access their full 1140 hours childcare entitlement by August 2020. So that we have room for everyone, we'll be making some improvements to existing nurseries, building new ones and extending our primary schools.

We'll also be working in partnership with private nurseries and local childminders to ensure that all children can access childcare in a way that best suits them.

Improving our nurseries and building new ones

Our building designs meet the Scottish Government's Quality Action Plan for the Expansion of Early Learning and Childcare in Scotland and have been developed with council officers, education professionals and the Care Inspectorate.

Our biggest projects are building four new centres in Dargavel, Houston, Kirklandneuk and Lochfield ELCCs and three major extensions for Inchinnan and Kilbarchan community nurseries and St Margaret's ELCC.

We are also undertaking minor building works at Auchenlodment, Bridge of Weir, East Fulton, Ferguslie Gallowhill, Glenburn, Glendee, Glenfield, Heriot, Lochwinnoch, Mossvale, Paisley, Ralston, St Anne's, St Catherine's Todholm, and West Johnstone, Williamsburgh ELCCs.
