Looked After Two Year Olds and Those in Kinship Care

All children in this group are entitled to 600 hours of early learning and childcare from 1st April 2014. Options for childcare provision could include:

  • childminder
  • playgroup
  • wraparound care
  • Olivebank Child & Family Centre
  • Tots & Teens
  • partnership centre
  • day care
  • family support worker.

Children will receive this support until they move onto nursery, regardless of any change in circumstance which may affect or change their looked-after status.

Please note: If the children cared for come from another authority (for example, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Ayrshire, West Lothian or Scottish Borders), arrangements for 600 hours of early learning and childcare must be agreed by the 'home authority' before the place can be taken up.
