COSLA comment on the Audit Scotland Early Learning and Childcare Report

Councillor Stephen McCabe, COSLA Spokesperson for Children and Young People, today (Thursday) welcomed the publication of the Audit Scotland report into Early Learning and Childcare.

"Scotland's Councils are dedicated to getting it right for children and young people and no more so than when we are delivering services for our youngest children and their families. We know that it is at this point that we can make the greatest difference to the outcomes in their lives. 

“COSLA is pleased that the quality of local authority provision is recognised in this report as is the continual growing of flexible ELC provision within each council area. Now we will focus on delivering the expansion of ELC with our partners, taking the necessary time to ensure that our focus remains on the high quality education of young children in Scotland."
