Applications can be submitted at any time of the year. If you wish to use a Registered Childminder to access your child's entitlement, you should ask them if they are registered with the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA) to provide funded ELC places in Glasgow and if they have the capacity to admit your child.
Childminders must be part of the Council's ELC framwork to provide funded ELC and this is adminstered through the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA). Information on Rgistered Childminders is available from the Glasgow Family Information Service website - www.gfis.org.uk
Once they have confirmed they are part of the Glasgow framwork, you should contact SCMA to request an application form. You will need to provide a copy of your child's birth certifcate and proof of address.
