Parents are now able to buy additional nursery sessions where space is available.
The new service follows the approval of a nursery charging policy at a recent Council meeting.
Education Convener Ellen Forson said: "The Council is committed to providing a flexible model of early learning and childcare for all our families. Offering unused nursery places allows parents some choice and flexibility in order to support them to work, train or study. It also offers young children the increased chance to play and learn in a supportive and nurturing environment."
While some of our nurseries are full, many have spaces available. Parents should check with their local nursery to find out about availability.
The charges are based on a 3 hour 10 minute session - full details are available on ClacksWeb.
