Expansion of Early Learning and Childcare


The Scottish Government now provides funding to allow three and four-year-old children to receive 600 hours of free early learning and childcare every year. That works out at around 16 hours every week over school term times.

From August 2015, some families with two-year-old children also qualify to receive the free early learning and childcare.

Lending Library

The children have really enjoyed using the lending library and we have had lots of postive feedback from parents and children.

Some parents comments

“Our children enjoyed finding the pigs in the Wibbly Pig book”

“My child enjoyed the touchy feely bits in the story and making the noise of the cat”

“My child really enjoyed the story, always points out the mouse and enjoys stomping around like the Gruffalo”

Children comments

“She jumped in the bubble bath” (after reading her book about Maisie at home)

“Read it with Mummy and Daddy”

“Another one”
