In our Centre, we are able to accommodate children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. Children age 3 to 5 years are currently offered 940 hours per year funded childcare with the option purchase additional hours.
Cleddens Early Years Centre is a purpose built extended day and year nursery provision which opened in October 2003. We relocated to our current building in April 2017. The Centre caters for approximately 200 children a week and has a Baby Room, 2-3 Room and a 3-5 Playroom.
We also make good use of our Family Room and our outdoor learning areas.
Parents living in East Dunbartonshire can apply for places within the centre via East Dunbartonshire Council website. Prices are available from the EDC early years team. Childcare packages are dependent on your needs and availability within the centre; we are open from 8 am to 6 pm, Monday and Friday.
We operate a staff/child ratio established by the Care Inspectorate Scotland.
The Baby Room ratio is 1 staff member to 3 babies and in the 2-3 Room 1 staff member to 5 toddlers. The 3-5 Room is 1 staff member to 8 children for extended day provision.
