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.
The closing date for 2020/2021 session applications was 13 March 2020.
However, any parent/carer who has not yet submitted a 3-5 Nursery Application form for this session can still do so by completing a nursery application form, attaching a copy of your current Council Tax bill and a copy of the child’s birth certificate. These can either be emailed to email@example.com or posted to Early Learning & Childcare, 1st Floor Civic Square, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell, ML1 1TP.
Late applications will be offered a place once all applications received prior to the 13th March have been offered a place.
