Clober Nursery can accommodate children from 2 years to 5 years old. Some children will be allocated a term-time place; others can buy into an extended day/extended year place. Our term-time year is the same as the primary school year.
Clober Nursery is an extended day and year nursery provision. The Centre caters for 10 children in the 2-3 Room and 72 children in the 3-5 Playrooms.
The 2 year old provision has 1 playroom, the Koala room. The 3-5 provision has 4 playrooms, the Zebra room, the Leopard room, the Panda room and the Giraffe room. We also have daily access to our outdoor learning area at the back of the nursery.
Parents living in East Dunbartonshire can pay for extended day places with a minimum of 8 hours a week, the costs are available from Southbank House. The childcare packages are dependent on your needs; we are open from 8 am and close at 6 pm.
