3 – Edinburgh Leisure Creches Council notes: The budget pressures on Edinburgh Leisure with respect to retaining crèche facilities at sports centres That the Administration’s Single Outcome Agreement requires sports facilities to be provided for all users, including parents of young children Edinburgh Leisure’s commitment to provision for under 5’s and growing their programme of physical activity sessions so they can have fun and stay active independently of their parents Edinburgh Leisure’s commitment (press release 24 November 2009) to ‘ensuring that as many people as possible in Edinburgh get started and stay active’ and to exploring alternative delivery options for the current crèche service. Exploration of those options has already commenced; and That information has been provided to crèche users together with an invitation to engage with Edinburgh Leisure should they be interested in providing the crèche service by alternative means. Edinburgh Leisure intends meeting user groups in January to discuss progress. Council agrees to work with Edinburgh Leisure, private organisations, not for profit groups and voluntary organisations to identify models to allow crèche facilities to remain available. Council also notes that dialogue between Edinburgh Leisure and the Council is continuing on this and other matters.
