Half-term hub support
To assist colleagues directly dealing with the health response to the pandemic we are providing childcare support over the school half-term holiday from Monday 8 to Wednesday 10 February at six school-based hubs.
This service is only for key workers who are assisting with the ongoing health response with the NHS, other emergency services, or who are involved directly with the vaccination programme.
Even if you have never applied previously, you can still use the above form.
Please note, you must show proof of eligibility.
The childcare support will be delivered by Culture and Leisure North Lanarkshire, Active Schools and Community Learning and Development providing a range of activities.
We have very few childcare spaces and this service should only be accessed if absolutely necessary for children of key workers that are in early years, ASN, primary or secondary schools.
Schools are not open due to the holiday but the six hubs below will be open for urgent childcare but you must tell us if you need access to it.
The hubs will be open from 8.30am until 4pm on each of the three days at the following schools:
- Cumbernauld Academy, South Kildrum Ring Road, G67 2UF
- St Ambrose High School, Townhead Road, Coatbridge, ML5 2JE
- Hilltop Primary School, Petersburn Road, Airdrie, ML6 8BH
- Cathedral Primary School, Milton Street, Motherwell, ML1 1DH
- Clyde Valley High School, Castlehill Road, Wishaw, ML2 0QS
- Calderhead High School, Dyfrig Street, Shotts ML7 4DH
Parents/carers are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure your child arrives safely at the hubs safely as school crossing patrols not in operation on those days.
We are unable to provide transport for the mid-term break.
Packed lunch and snacks will be available for children attending.
The online form should be submitted by 4pm on Friday 29 January 2021.
Please note that this provision should be considered as emergency childcare for key worker parents.
