The Care and Learning Alliance (CALA) will operate a new early learning childcare service from our site at Inverness Campus from July 2021.

CALA plan to offer early learning and childcare from 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, and throughout the holidays, subject to parental demand, from 3rd July.

They will also be offering 1140 funded hours for eligible 2-year-olds, 3 and 4 year-olds.
