Keeping you informed

We want to make sure you don’t miss out on anything that’s happening within CALA, or within the childhood practice sector in Scotland. We have many ways of keeping in touch with staff, members, parents and carers. As well as traditional methods – phone, email, face to face, print media (posters, etc) – we have an array of online/electronic methods of communication. They’re all FREE – please sign up now!

The CALA Blog

This is a short colourful, chatty email format that keeps you up to date with both serious and fun stuff going on around families, childcare and early education. People tell us that they love the CALA Blog – you could too! Get in touch with us if you’d like signed up for the blog: [email protected]
