We have been working across a number of areas and settings to trial our provision for East Lothian. This means that 1140 hours is already being offered in some parts of the county.
1140 hours was due to be introduced across all settings (local authority nurseries and funded providers) from August 2020. However the outbreak of coronavirus led the Scottish Government to announce that it would remove this statutory duty. Instead, 1140 hours will be offered from August 2021.
What can I do?
Register for an Early Learning and Childcare place as soon as your child is two years old. See the section 'Registering your child for EL&C'. This will help also us with future place planning.
