We can accommodate up to 31 two-year-olds and 19 babies age 6weeks -2 years old per nursery session. Places are allocated by East Renfrewshire Council in accordance with their admissions policy which reflects The Standards in Scotland’s Schools Act 2000 and The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, which place a duty on local authorities to provide 1140 hours of free Early Learning and Childcare for all eligible 2year olds. Applications for eligible two-year-old children can be made as your child turns two, once a place has been allocated they will usually start within that term. All places are allocated in accordance with East Renfrewshire’s Admission Policy by the admissions team within the Education Department.
Hours are as follows:
Stretch A – morning session: 8am-12.45 pm Afternoon session: 1pm-5.45pm

Almost all children attending Glen Family Centre have been allocated a place either through the Early Years Intervention Group (E.Y.I G.) or our Local Authority Placement system (L.A.P). We also offer a limited number of paying places and extended hours. For more information regarding this please speak to a member of the management team who will be happy to assist you in respect of Family Centre availability, cost etc. To allow the children to benefit from their full nursery session please adhere to these times. If you need to collect your child before the end of the session please inform management who will advise a member of staff that your child will be collected early on this occasion. For health and safety purposes, when picking up or dropping off your child we ask that only one adult enters the building. Any parent dropping off/collecting their child between 9am-11.30am and 1.15pm – 3.30pm will be required to use the back playroom entrances. (Front gates will be closed for safety reasons.)
