How do I apply for childcare?

All applications for funding are now completed on the East Dunbartonshire Council website. Any parent having difficulty accessing the EDC online applications should speak to their local Early Learning and Childcare Centre or the EDC Hub for assistance.

For parents applying for funded providers places, the place must be secured directly with the centre and a funding form completed on the EDC website.

Allocations take place following the admissions and bandings procedures as detailed in the admissions policy.

Applications for 0 to two year olds should be collected from Early Learning and Childcare Centres that provide under 2 year old provision.

Parents applying to local authority ELC’s can apply for two year old places at any time online. Parents should speak to their desired ELC to enquire about availability of spaces.

Applications should be completed between January and 28 February for funded 3-5 year olds. Thereafter applications will be considered late applications.

Parents must apply for 3 year old and then again the following year for their 4 year old funded place.

Enquiries regarding funding or allocations should be sent directly to earlyyears@eastdunbarton.gov.uk.
