Early Years & Childcare Services
FCSS was created after it was found that parents were unable to accept offers of employment due to a lack of flexible childcare services.
Building on this model of flexibility, accessibility and by always putting children and families at the centre of all we do, we have created a range of services which include:
FCSS has the capacity to operate a fully equipped mobile crèche service that can operate in any venue alongside training days, meetings, conferences, and even weddings or other social events.
The crèche can be booked for a few hours or for full days depending on your needs and the needs of your guests.
Finding flexible childcare that fits into the working day has always been tricky but now workplaces across Scotland can work with us to create bespoke childcare solutions at their premises. This could include:
- Delivering opening hours that reflect your business hours
- An hourly booking service suitable for flexible or part time employees
- Tailored packages that meet both employees’, and their children’s, needs
Out of School Clubs
Our Out of School Clubs have been recognised by funders, charity partners and local and national government as exceptional services for the children and families who use them.
All of our clubs are unique and they are all designed to meet the needs of the children and families that use them, they all provide children with a unique learning experience before and after school and throughout the school holidays.
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.

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.

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.
