LASC Childcare Services is a well-established community-run nursery and after school club based in Loanhead. We are a registered charity and operate as a social enterprise, which means all of our profits are put back into the services we provide. We are committed to providing high quality childcare at affordable rates. Children with additional support needs are fully integrated throughout our services. Our directors and management team are all local Midlothian residents. We already provide childcare for over 600 children in Loanhead, Bilston, Roslin and Rosewell.
Following requests from local families, we are applying to Midlothian Council to take a long-term lease of the Pavilion in Rosewell Park in order to create a new daycare nursery for children aged 0-5. We will be seeking funding to refurbish and extend the Pavilion. In order to be successful, we need to consult with local residents about whether you support our proposed development of the building. The new nursery would be open from 2020 and would help us deliver the Scottish Government's target of 1140 hours of free childcare to all children in Scotland. At present, there are insufficient childcare services in Rosewell to meet that need. We want to know what you think about our ideas. Please take a few minutes to answer this short questionnaire.
