- Wraparound Care
We have set up wraparound care facilities at some of our pre-school education establishments in line with Scottish Government guidance. To be eligible for wraparound care your child must be in pre-school education or attending P1 to P3. In line with Council policy, priority is given to ante pre-school and pre-school aged children for wraparound care places. It may be possible, where there is enough space, to offer wraparound care places to pupils in P1 to P3. To find out which nursery schools offer wraparound care, and for wraparound care opening times please view the Schools List under Online Tools on the right.
Wraparound care is not a free service, although we do everything we can to keep charges as low as possible. We have to charge so that wraparound care is cost effective as required by the Scottish Government, and is reliable. Charges for wraparound care are currently £3.50 per hour, with an annual administration fee of £20.
Wraparound care is not available for P4-P7 children. You might want to find out about other childcare, such as after school clubs or childminders. If you would like up-to-date information on the childcare services available in your area, please phone the Childcare Information Service on 01506 280044, or use the link on the right to visit the Scottish Childcare website.
