Early Learning and Childcare: expansion to 1140 hours parent/carer survey

Closed 22 Sep 2017

Opened 24 Aug 2017


The Scottish Government plans to expand Early Learning and Childcare for all three and four year olds and eligible two year olds by 2020. 

Last year, we consulted with parents/carers to help us to begin to plan for the expansion. 

This year, we are asking parents/carers for their views to help plan the next phase of the expansion.

Please take a few minutes to complete our online survey (see link below).

Why We Are Consulting

We want to know more about parents and carers' experience of early learning and childcare - what services you use and why, how often and when.

We also want to know what you would like to see in the future - how you would prefer to use services, when and where, and if there are ways in which they could meet your family's needs better.

The survey will close on Friday 22 September 2017.

What Happens Next

We will summarise the survey results and what we intend to do about them. 

We will make these available on the Consultation Hub and to parents/carers in early learning and childcare establishments
