Purchase of additional early learning and childcare

We are committed to providing high quality early learning and childcare experiences for all our children, where they gain vital language and learning skills and improve their social development in a high quality early learning and childcare setting.

To support children and families in South Ayrshire, where places are available in our Local Authority Early Years Centres, parents/carers can apply to purchase early learning and childcare in addition to their 1140 hours entitlement.

For those children aged 2 years and 3-5 years currently accessing early learning and childcare, an application can be made to purchase additional attendance options at the centre your child currently attends.

For children aged 2 years, not currently accessing early learning and childcare, who are resident within South Ayrshire, an application can be made to purchase attendance options at any centre with 2 year old provision. Places available available for children aged 2-3 years are very limited and may only be available in our rural EYC's. 

Applications cannot be submitted prior to a child's 2nd birthday.

School holiday provision may also be available to purchase in some centres.

Any bookings will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
