Welcome to Gibshill Children's Centre.

The Children's Centre.Welcome to Gibshill Children’s Centre.

Gibshill Children’s Centre has been on this site in Gibshill since the 1970s. It was initially an Urban Aid Funded Project and then taken over by Education Services. In 2000 the Centre was substantially upgraded and we now have a beautiful, bright, airy building.

The Centre provides a high standard of care and education for children aged 2-5 years which we hope that you will become aware of when you visit. We believe that close links between Home and Centre are essential and that working in partnership with you will provide the best service for you and your child.

We believe in nurturing an environment where children and adults will feel safe, secure and happy. We will value their individuality, abilities and skills and ensure that their achievements are celebrated.

We hope that visiting the website gives you an insight into the centre however if you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact us via the following:

Inverclyde Council has agreed to continue to deliver 1140 hours during the course of session 20 / 21. ELC settings will work towards this during session 2020 / 21 with all children receiving their full entitlement as soon as COVID -19 restrictions are removed. If you have applied for a blended placement (nursery and childminder) you will be contacted by a member of the Education HQ team to discuss options.

Information on placements was due to be issued to parents on 19 June 2020; however the decision was taken on 17 June to delay this process to allow Heads of Early Learning and Childcare Settings and Primary Schools to match patterns of attendance for siblings. The following information will be issued to all parents WB 22 June 2020:

· Parents of returning children will receive information on their 1140 allocation and their temporary COVID 19 allocation.

· New applicants will receive information on their 1140 allocation; their COVID 19 allocations and enrolment details will be shared in August 2020.
