At Glen we can accommodate up to 31 two year olds and 19 babies aged 6 weeks – 2 years.

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 2 year olds. All places are allocated by the Education Departments Admissions Team in accordance with East Renfrewshire’s  Admission policy.


1140 hrs are allocated as follows:

Stretch A:  morning session:       5 x 8.00am – 12.45pm

afternoon session:     5 x 1.00pm – 5.45pm

Stretch B:  2  x  9 hrs 30 mins and 1  x  4hrs 45 mins per week (two and a half days)

Term time: Monday – Friday 9.00-3.00 (do not attend during school holiday periods)

Children requiring an additional or alternative placement must be referred by their Health visitor, social worker or educational psychologist. The referral will be made to the authority’s EYIG (Early Years Intervention Group).This is a multi-agency group which meets monthly to consider each case received on an individual basis.

All enquiries regarding allocations should be made to:

Education Department

Almost all our children have been allocated either through the Early Years Intervention Group (EYIG) or Local Authority Placements (LAP). We also offer a limited number of paying places. These places can be applied for up to 12 weeks before the placement is required by emailing for an application form.  All applications go to a ballot at the end of the LAP allocations meeting and families will be informed thereafter if they have been successful. Movement from 0-2 room to 2-3’s requires a new application which again has to be entered into the ballot.

The acceptance of a place within an establishment does not give your child any additional priority should you wish to submit an application for their funded entitlement / 2 year old place. 

If you require any further information then please speak to either Catherine our Business Support or a member of the management team.
