Earlier in the year we asked parents/carers to complete a survey on their experiences of 1140 hours of early learning and childcare. The survey was live online via East Lothian Council’s consultation hub. Paper copies were also available for anyone without internet access.
We are pleased that a large number of parent/carers responded, giving their individual views and experiences of 1140 hours so far. However the large number means that it is taking longer than anticipated to collate all responses and comments to support us to fully understand the views of our parents/carers in relation to the existing service. Once this is completed we will make the results of the consultation available through our 1140 website.
As we work to understand parent/carer views, and potential future considerations for our service, it has been agreed that nurseries will continue with the current models for the academic year 2022 to 2023.
