Do you have a child aged 0-2 years of age?

Do you receive tax credits, universal credit or other qualifying benefits?* 

Do you want your child to attend an Early Learning and Childcare provider within the areas covered by Dumfries & Galloway Council, City of Edinburgh Council, or Glasgow City Council? 

If you have answered yes to all of these questions, then we might be able to make it easier for your child to get a nursery or childminder place. Early Years Scotland (EYS) is working together with the Scottish Government to pilot a new scheme to reduce the upfront costs of securing a nursery/childminder place. You still have to pay your regular monthly fees, but you will not have to pay an upfront deposit, which can sometimes be difficult for families.
