Early Learning and Childcare: EASTER 2021

Closed 19 Mar 2021

Opened 26 Feb 2021


The Scottish Government is committed to increasing the funded entitlement to Early Learning & Childcare for all eligible 3-4 year olds and eligible 2 year olds from 600 hours to 1140 hours. This was due to be introduced across all settings (local authority and funded providers) from August 2020. However the outbreak of coronavirus led the Scottish Government to delay the statutory duty to August 2021.

As part of the planned phasing, from 20 April 2021, Dunbar Primary School, Haddington Primary School, Letham Mains Primary School, St Mary's RC Primary and Sanderson's Wynd Primary School will increase the number of hours and weeks available.

These settings will be open over the summer break between July and August, if there is sufficient demand

The link below is for those parents/carers who have received an email to respond to confirm the acceptance of the place, hours your child will attend and the weeks you would like to use over the summer holidays. The closing date for responses is Friday 19th March 2021.
