Survey on Out of School Care


The City of Edinburgh Council is committed to supporting the development of childcare services including Breakfast Clubs, After School Clubs and Holiday Provision across the Authority.  They would like to know which services are used, what parents and carers think about them, and if there is anything that they would like to change.

The Scottish Government has also asked all councils to talk to parents and carers about their experience of using out of school care services so they can be improved.

Parental feedback is very important as it will help to inform how services are planned in the future.

The survey can be completed online here:

Or you could print a paper copy, complete it and return it to school:
