Scottish Government Survey re Provision of Free Childcare for 3 or 4 year olds
The Scottish Government has proposed to increase the provision of free childcare to 1140 hours per year for children who are 3 or 4 years old, as well as for vulnerable 2 year olds who are eligible for the 600 hours free entitlement through the Children & Young People’s Act 2014. With this in mind we are conducting a survey exploring how parents would wish to use this increase. The results of this survey will help guide policy on early years child care provision. In order for the survey to produce representative results it is important that we reach as many parents of 3 or 4 year old children from as wide a variety of back grounds as possible, this includes those who do not currently use free child-care provision.
The survey is available at the following link.
The Scottish Government requires us to consult with parents/carers every two years with regards to their childcare needs. Please could you take a little time to complete this survey, which should only take a few minutes.
The survey closes on 10th July 2015.
We hope you enjoy looking at our website and finding out about some of our learning at Riverside.
We now use Twitter as an extra way of communicating some school events to parents. Please note that this is not a forum for concerns and these would be continued to be addressed in the usual way of communicating directly with the school.
