Summer Holiday Childcare Discount Scheme

Summer childcare provision is available for children in local authority and private settings. A discount of 50% up to a maximum of £10 per day per child will be provided to support families on low incomes to access holiday childcare for their children.

When, where and how do I make an application to the discount scheme?

Applications for the discount scheme for local authority or private providers can be made by using the application button at the bottom of this page.

Your child must reside in South Ayrshire and be between the age of 5 and 14 years. Please note that some settings may provide care for younger children. You, the parent/carer, must meet at least on of the eligibility criteria detailed in the form.

You will be required to upload evidence of your benefit to support your application. Applications cannot be processed without this information.

Families who do not meet the criteria will be required to pay the full rate of their provider.

Please note that application to the discount scheme does not register or book sessions with your provider. This must be completed separately and you should inform your provider that an application to the scheme has been made.
