In our Centre, we are able to accommodate children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. Some children will be allocated a term-time place; others can buy into an extended day/extended year place. Our term-time year is the same as the primary school year.
Cleddens Early Learning and Childcare 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 at the back of the building.
Parents living in East Dunbartonshire can pay for extended day places as long as it is a minimum of 16 hours a week, the costs are available from Southbank House. The childcare packages are dependent on your needs; we are available from 8 am and close at 6 pm.
The Term Time morning session starts at 8.40am until 11.50am and the afternoon session is 12.50pm until 4pm.
Extended Day sessions are 8am-12pm, 8am-1pm, 1pm-5pm, 1pm-6pm, 8am-5pm or 8am-6pm.
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 and 1 staff member to 10 children for Term Time children.
