Early Learning and Childcare

Early Learning and Childcare is changing, for the better!

The Scottish Government announced plans to expand Early Learning and Childcare across Scotland in 2016. A Blueprint for 2020 sets out plans to almost double early learning and childcare entitlement (from 600 to 1140 hours per year) for all 3 and 4 year olds and eligible 2 year olds in 2020. Things have moved on substantially since this document was published but the basic premise and values remain the same.

Plans in North Lanarkshire are at an advanced stage and applications for August 2020 are now being accepted. The closing date for applications is 13 March 2020.
