Nursery 1140 Hours Update

Nursery Places August 2020

The Scottish Government announced this week that that we are to postpone the requirement to provide 1140 hours from August 2020. This means that the City of Edinburgh’s Early Years` team will need to look at the provision of Early Learning and Childcare across the city for August on a setting by setting basis and agree on provisions that we are able to offer families. This provision may well look quite different from what was previously planned and may cause concern to parents/carers whom have already put plans in place. We will try to ensure that families have access to 600 hours until such times as the infrastructure and workforce are in place to phase in 1140 provision.

Please see attached the letter from City of Edinburgh Council.
