Maryhill Mobile Creche

Maryhill Mobile Crèche was established in 1987 by a group of mothers who wanted good quality childcare provision for their children, to enable them to take part in activities within their local community.

For the last 24 years, the organisation has been providing its services at various locations within the Maryhill area of Glasgow, as well as in other locations within the surrounding area. Throughout these years, Maryhill Mobile Crèche has developed into a valuable resource for the community, providing services for around 784 groups and 5,460 children.

Maryhill Mobile Creche is managed by a committee of parents/carers and have meeting every six/eight weeks to discuss up to date issues.  They also have an Annual General Meeting ever year in November all parents/Carers are welcome to come.  Staffs have a range of qualifications relevant to their work and keep up to date with current training e.g. First Aid, Child Protection.

Mission Statement - To provide good quality childcare, through a team of highly skilled childcare workers, for children from birth to 16 years, which enables groups and parents/carers within the boundaries of Maryhill and the surrounding areas to participate fully in all aspects of community life.

Mobile Creche

The crèche provides fun, play opportunities for children while their parents/carers are attending various groups e.g. Community Education classes, parent support groups, Housing Association meetings etc.  Children can attend from 0-16yrs.  Some crèches charge a small fee per child, which helps towards new toys/food for snacks.

Respite

Maryhill Mobile Creche also provides a ‘respite’ service for children less than three years of age, where parents/carers can bring their child to one of our groups (currently six) and leave their child in a play environment for two hours. This service is provided for parents/carers, who, for various reasons find, themselves in need of extra help.
