New Opportunities

As part of the process of ensuring that we have the resources necessary to deliver 1,140 hours of early learning and childcare to all North Lanarkshire 3-5yr olds and eligible 2yr olds we have revised our staffing structure and many of our private funded providers have made changes too. There are more hours, and a range of flexible options.

Early Learning and Childcare Staff

Within the council the expansion programme has allowed us to create a new dynamic career pathway which supports staff through nationally accredited training as well as offering opportunities to progress.

Private nurseries and childminders will provide a similar environment for their children so whilst they may structure their setting in a different way, the opportunities for staff to extend their skill sets are very similar.
