A Blueprint for 2020: The Expansion of Early Learning and Childcare in Scotland


The Scottish Government’s aim is to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up, and to give all of our children the best possible start in life.

They will deliver a transformative change in the Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) provision by almost doubling the free entitlement to 1140 hours per year by 2020.

Visit the Scottish Government's website to find out more details about their proposal.
