COSLA comment on childminders and the expansion of early learning and childcare

A COSLA Spokesperson said: "All local authorities have submitted their expansion plans and all 32 include provision for working with childminders. Our position at COSLA is that childminders play a key role in the expansion and could offer opportunities for a targeted GIRFEC approach for children and their families.

"Quality is the most important element of the early learning expansion and we look forward to the quality standard being developed which will ensure that all parents can be reassured that their child will receive the same quality provision no matter who they choose to provide their early learning and childcare."
