Childcare First Nurseries are purpose built facilities and we are dedicated to providing a quality service for all children and families attending the nurseries.

Childcare First is a registered charity and operates on a not for profit basis. The Company supports the social inclusion and economic agendas of national and local government and the Engage Renfrewshire.

Childcare First Nurseries aim to:

  • Provide high quality care and education.
  • Nurture all aspects of young children’s development and learning.
  • Encourage the formation of positive attitudes to learning and to others.
  • Support parents in their employment, training/education and parenting roles.

We will do this by:

  • Providing high quality childcare for families with babies and young children 0-5 years.
  • Providing a responsive, stimulating, safe and secure environment for children.
  • Taking time to get to know families and nurture individual needs and talents.
  • Developing high quality curriculum for excellence experiences which are responsive to the learning styles and development needs of each child.
  • Working in partnership with parents/carers, families and the community.

The nurseries operate from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday 50 weeks of the year. Both Hillview and Rainbow nursery are closed for two weeks over the festive period, Public/statutory holidays and 5 in service days per year.

The Nurseries are registered providers of Renfrewshire Council’s Pre School Commissioned Placements.

A variety of placements are available; please note no placement will be allocated for sessions of less than 2 full days/4 sessions.
