We Asked, You Said, We Did

Below are some of the issues we have recently consulted on and their outcomes.

Early Learning and Childcare

We Asked:

We asked parents/carers for their views on the current situation regarding ealry years provision and on the Scottish Government's plans for the future - increasing hours from 600 to 1140 hours for all 3 and 4 year olds and eligible 2 yeard olds.

You Said:

We outlined four models of how the new hours could potentially be introduced and asked parents/carers to say which they thought was best.  They came back with a clear response.

We Did:

We will use the findings of the consultation to inform which models are piloted in the lead up to the introduction of 1140 hours by 2020. 

New nurseries which will be open from August 2017 will offer provision throughout the year, including during the school holidays.
