Childcare Information Service

The Childcare Information Service holds comprehensive information about early years provision and registered childcare services across South Lanarkshire, including:

  • childminders
  • South Lanarkshire Council nurseries
  • partnership nurseries
  • out of school care clubs
  • parent and toddler groups
  • playgroups

We can tell you where childcare services are located, provide you with contact details, as well as being able to tell you when they operate, and what they cost.

Information provided on a voluntary basis by the individual services concerned. While we make every effort to maintain the accuracy of this information we cannot guarantee it.

If you need help to pay for childcare, you may be entitled to receive tax credits. To find out if you are eligible, visit DirectGov or call HM Revenue and Customs Tax Credits helpline on 0845 300 3900.

If you are looking for childcare outside South Lanarkshire, we are able to signpost you to colleagues at the Childcare Information Service in other areas of the UK.
