Summer Childcare (Key Workers)

If you are a key worker and require childcare over the summer holiday period, you need to apply for this. Even if your child attends the Hub/St. Clare's at present, you still need to apply.  

School Holiday Childcare for School Age Families of Key Workers Application Process Open - Update Friday 5 June 2020

As the school holidays are approaching, we are conscious that families of key workers will still require childcare throughout this period. If you are a keyworker from the following categories and require childcare over the summer period, you will need to apply here.

The closing date of applications is 12 midnight on Wednesday 17 June 2020.

The following categories will be applied when deciding who will get access to available childcare and from Scottish Government guidance.

  • Category 1 - Health and Care workers directly supporting COVID response, and associated staff; Health and Care workers supporting life threatening emergency work, as well as critical primary and community care provision; Energy suppliers (small numbers identified as top priority already); staff providing childcare/learning for other category 1 staff.


  • Category 2 - All other Health and Care workers, and wider public sector workers providing emergency/critical welfare services (for example: fire, police, prisons, social workers), as well as those supporting our Critical National Infrastructure, without whom serious damage to the welfare of the people of Scotland could be caused.


  • Category 3 - All workers (private, public or third sector) without whom there could be a significant impact on Scotland (but where the response to COVID-19, or the ability to perform essential tasks to keep the country running, would not be severely compromised).
