Survey for Early Learning and Childcare
The Scottish Government plans to expand Early Learning and Childcare services to almost double the number of funded hours from 600 currently to 1140 each year. These extra hours will be available to all children aged 3 or 4 years old and will be in place by session 2020/21. Families should have choice and flexibility in how they use services – including whether they use all of their child’s funded hours and whether they use them during school term time or throughout the year.
City of Edinburgh Council want to find out what your experience of Early Learning and Child Care is really like in Edinburgh, whether you use it or not, what you like and if there is anything you think could be changed or improved.
Please do have your voice heard by completing the surveys below.
