All children aged 3-5 years old are entitled to 1140 hours of Scottish Government funded early learning and childcare (ELC).

As a Funded Provider, families can use their child’s funded entitlement at our Newlands Nursery and Kindergarten. 

Children become eligible according to when their 3rd birthday falls. In Glasgow, you can access your child’s funded entitlement from the Monday after their 3rd birthday.

You can access your child’s hours over 50 weeks of the year August to July; or over term-time August to June. 

The entitlement is pro-rata. This means that if your child starts nursery after August their entitlement for that year is proportionally reduced.

Your child's funded hours can be utilised either: 

  1. Term time: Five mornings (7.30am to 12.30pm) plus two afternoons (12.30pm to 3.50pm)
  2. Year round: Five mornings (7.30am to 12.30pm)

Additional sessions are charged at The Academy rate of £6.40/hour (2021/22). If you are eligible, additional session costs can be paid using the Tax Free Childcare Scheme
