Out of school care services are for school-age children either before or after they attend school. They are usually based in or near schools and more are being set up to help families where parents work. They offer opportunities for children to play and learn and have fun in groups. Out of school services within East Dunbartonshire Council are private businesses.
All the above services are registered with and inspected by the Care Inspectorate. Further information on childcare services which are registered, including copies of Inspection Reports and grades achieved are available on Care Inspectorate website.
The local Childcare Information Service provides a database of local and national childcare services including out of school.
