1140 hours of Early Learning and Childcare Consultation

This consultation is now closed. Consultation feedback and proposed actions going forward can be found in the report below.

The Scottish Government have committed to increase the number of funded hours of Early Learning and Childcare, from 600 hours to 1140 hours per year, for all children aged 3 and 4 years old and eligible 2 year olds.

Argyll and Bute Council is working with the Scottish Government, Partner and Third Sector organisations to ensure that this increased level of service will be in place by August 2020.

From Monday 4th September Argyll and Bute Early Years Service will begin consulting with residents of Argyll and Bute. The Early Years Service would be grateful if you would help, by completing the questionnaire.  Even if you feel this does not currently apply to you, your views will help shape future services for children and families across Argyll and Bute.
