To assist colleagues directly dealing with the health response to the pandemic, we are providing childcare support over the school half-term holiday from Monday 8 to Wednesday 10 February at six school-based hubs.
This service is only for key workers who are assisting with the ongoing health response with the NHS, other emergency services, or who are involved directly with the vaccination programme.
We have very few childcare spaces and this service should only be accessed if absolutely necessary for children of key workers that are in early years, ASN, primary or secondary schools. The childcare support will be delivered by Culture and Leisure North Lanarkshire, Active Schools and Community Learning and Development providing a range of activities.
Schools are not open due to the holiday but the six hubs below will be open for urgent childcare BUT you do need to tell us if you need access to it.
The hubs will be open from 8.30am until 4pm on each of the three days at the following schools:-
Cumbernauld Academy, South Kildrum Ring Road, G67 2UF
St Ambrose High School, Townhead Road, Coatbridge, ML5 2JE
Hilltop Primary School, Petersburn Road, Airdrie, ML6 8BH
Cathedral Primary School, Milton Street, Motherwell, ML1 1DH
Clyde Valley High School, Castlehill Road, Wishaw, ML2 0QS
Calderhead High School, Dyfrig Street, Shotts ML7 4DH
Parents/carers should apply for a space and prove eligibility using the online form which will be available on the https://www.northlanarkshire.gov.uk/holidayhubs web page and forms should be submitted by4pm on Friday 29 January 2021.
Please note that this provision should be considered as emergency childcare for key worker parents. Lunches and snacks will be provided but there will be no transport available.
