We Asked, You Said, We Did

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

We Asked

We asked parents/carers for their views on the current situation regarding early 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. 

For more information, see the Early Years blog

 

We Asked

This consultation sought responses on a number of policy options contained within the draft Supplementary Guidance. 

You Said

Responses in general showed broad support for the preferred policy options on the basis that greater flexibility will enhance and maintain vitality, viability and occupancy rates. However, a number of concerns were also raised which the finalised version of the Supplementary Guidance seeks to address.

We Did

The consultation responses have been fed into a finalised Leith Town Centre Supplementary Guidance which was approved at Planning Committee on 19 May 2016.
