Thanks to Flexible Childcare Services Scotland I’ve been able to start a new job that works out the same as my daughters nursery times. This means I’m able to work without missing out on any time with her as when I’m at work she’s in a playful learning environment with her friends just like she’s would be at school.

Using families at home has been amazing for me, it means I was able to return to education for 2 years and I’m now able to work knowing my daughter is safe and happy. My little ones loves coming to day care the staff are always friendly and helpful and are always on hand to do anything they can to help you.

We love the Daycare Service because of the flexibility and the staff! It has meant that we can still both work but have high quality childcare that we are not just working to pay for so it has enhanced our quality of life too. The staff are all amazing with our daughter and us as worried parents too!

Flexible Childcare Services Scotland empowers me to be a working mother. Without the flexibility of the service, I may not have been financially able to return to work.

Laura – April 2018


The flexibility of the service made it possible for me to start doing a degree at the university. Being able to book my child for exactly the hours I need has been invaluable both financially and in terms of convenience.

Jane – February 2019


Without the flexibility of the service we would be paying out 4 x as much in childcare. We are lucky to have my mother in law help 2 days a week. I am a nurse who works shifts therefore our requirements vary on a weekly basis.

Ashley – October 2017


Amazing nursery and staff. All natural resources which is amazing and its all child led. Both my girls love going and have learned and came on so much. The staff are amazing at their job and go above and beyond to help. Always there to support parents and children. Can’t recommend the team and nursery enough.
