About Us

The service has been successfully operating since 1991 and is well established within the local community. EPOSC can provide child care for both term time and holiday care.

EPOSC is open 50 weeks of the year, closing only on bank holidays and over the Christmas period.

Opening Hours:

Term time EPOSC opens from 15.00 hrs to 17.45 hrs and during school holidays EPOSC opens from 08.00 hrs until 17.45 hrs.   

During term time service EPOSC staff will collect your children from their schools and escort them to the service which is located on the lower floor within Pollokshields Primary School.
All children who attend Secondary School are expected to make their own way to EPOSC.

On arrival to the service we will provide the children with a healthy snack and drink, we will also cater for individual child's dietary requirements and ensure that all children's cultural needs are being met.

During school holidays EPOSC plan with the help of the children to organise a wide range of exciting activities and  to keep your children entertained some of these activities may include outings, and professional in-house workshops. 

 If you are interested in enrolling your child please feel free to arrange a visit to the service to see how we can meet your needs and answer any questions you might have.

We follow the guidelines set out in "Getting It Right For Every Child" which can be viewed here.
