Providers of Early Learning and Childcare

Early Years Provision

High quality, flexible early learning and childcare that is accessible and affordable for all families is available across East Dunbartonshire.  Provision of funded hours is available from Local Authority Early Years Centres and from providers in the private, voluntary and independent sectors, including Childminders that are in contract with the Council to deliver the funded hours.  There are different models of delivery available and more information can be found in the Parent/Carer Guide.  The dropdown section below sets out the providers and contact information.

Parents should liaise directly with their chosen funded provider to ensure they are in contract with the Council, and have a space available. 

Parents should follow their chosen provider's admissions policy to apply for a place and must also complete the relevant EDC online application form to secure their funding (see How to Apply page).

 If for any reason, a provider is no longer able to remain in contract with the Council and provide places, parents of placed children will be provided with support and advice on the options available to them.. 

Please get in touch if you have any other questions on provision in the area.
