About Us

After School Clubs, Holiday Clubs, Childcare & After School Activities in South Edinburgh, UK

Childcare Connections is the leading out of school childcare provider in the South Edinburgh areas of Gilmerton, Gracemount, The Inch and Moredun.   The organisation was set up in April 2000 to address the shortage of quality after school clubs in these areas and as such has been recognised as being a key factor in contributing to economic regeneration and social inclusion.
 
Over the past 11 years we have built up a first class reputation in providing flexible, quality, affordable holiday clubs and inclusive childcare for local parents and carers, enabling them to take up or remain in employment, education and training.
 
We operate a child-centred service where every child in our care, including those with additional support/special educational needs, has the opportunity to enjoy a safe, caring, healthy and stimulating play environment.   We offer 116 after school club places during term time over 4 locations, and 32 full time places during shool holiday periods.
 
Our high standards and quality childcare are recognised in the high grades we are given in The Care Inspectorate (formerly Care Commission) inspection reports as well as through the highest level of quality assurance accreditation (Aiming High Level 3) awareded by the Scottish Out of School Care Network.
 
All staff ar our holiday clubs are qualified and experienced to meet SSSC (Scottish Social Services Council) registration requirements.
