Thistle Childcare Centre – Stepping Stones for Families


Stepping Stones for Families provides families with quality, flexible early learning and childcare solutions.

Our Glasgow Childcare Centres are a partnership with Glasgow City Council and offer funded places for 3-5year olds within a full day care service catering for children age 0-5years.

Our term time Out of School Care service supports parents to enter, sustain their training and employment as part of our holistic childcare solutions in Possilpark, Glasgow.

We recognise that families sometimes require childcare at times to suit their work patterns and those work patterns do not always match with the times when childcare is available. Stepping Stones has a Childcare service to accommodate these needs. We can provide a quality childcare service in the family home – early morning, after school, in the evenings and at weekends. This service is also available for respite for families with a child / children with additional support needs.

Our Play and Care crèche services offer quality flexible childcare for organisations, businesses, colleges, universities, public sector to support their childcare needs on an ad hoc basis.
