Fees and Funding
We accept all childcare vouchers and offer fully funded placements in association with Glasgow City Council. Due to limited placements, we advise parents and carers to enquire as soon as possible to ensure you receive the sessions and start date you require.
For more information, please contact the South-Side Kindergarten or the West End Kindergarten or contact 0808 196 2588 (we may not always be able to answer your call if we are with children so please use the online contact forms where possible, thank you).
Our preferred method of payment is via standing order. Other acceptable methods are childcare vouchers, tax free childcare, cheque or cash.
We are pleased to work in partnership with Glasgow City Council to provide fully funded places for 3-5 year olds. Funding is available to all children, regardless of local authority boundaries. This means your child could attend Woodland Outdoor Kindergartens at no cost to you. Children can attend up to 1140 hours per year fully funded. Please click here for further information about funding.
Financial help is available to some families to assist with the cost of childcare. Families on middle and low incomes may be entitled to financial support such as Child Tax Credit or Working Tax Credit. The amount received is dependent on your circumstances and income. Find out if you are eligible for assistance here or call the Tax Credit helpline on 0845 300 3900.
The government has unfortunatley closed the Childcare Voucher scheme to new applicants. However, if you are an existing scheme member, you can continue to enjoy the benefits. We are registered with a number of voucher providers and are happy to sign with other agencies as used by your employer. You can find out more about using Childcare Vouchers here.
Tax Free Childcare
If you are a working parent, you can open an online account to pay for childcare. The government will top up the money you pay into the account. For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2. You can receive up to £2000 per child, per year.
