East Pollokshields Crèche, Bringing childcare to you

about us

East Pollokshields mobile crèche was established in 1991 and has successfully continued year after year to meet the ever-increasing demand for crèches in the area. The mobile crèche provides a service for people within the east Pollokshields area who require child care facilities to enable them to become involved in community groups adult education classes, training courses, local decision making forums etc. any group whether established or new may be able to use the mobile crèche service.

We currently operate from 427 Shields Road and we are grateful to our landlord, Southside Housing Association, who provides us with office and storage accommodation.

The project is run by a team of 4 permanent staff along with sessional staff who are qualified and fully vetted through Disclosure Scotland. It is managed by a voluntary management committee made up from parents and members of the local community. The project is inspected annually by The Care Commission Scotland. When you book the mobile crèche you need to provide an empty room that meets health and safety requirements. We will provide the qualified staff, toys, computers and fun for children aged 0-16 years.

The project provides employment for 15 local women from the black and ethnic minority community. These women feel that they are providing a useful, worthwhile service to their own community and the work is acceptable within their own families and cultures.
