Local Government fully committed to early learning and childcare expansion

COSLA’s Resources Spokesperson Councillor Gail Macgregor said: “As was clearly evident from the meeting of Council Leaders on Friday, local government is fully committed to early learning and childcare expansion to 1140 hours.

“COSLA and Scotland’s Council Leaders are fully behind investment in early years.  

“Getting to this point is a great example of collaboration to date. We must continue to work together to ensure successful delivery of this landmark policy.  

“This would mean building on the good working which is already taking place in other areas of education policy between our Education Spokesperson and Government Ministers.

“This is a bold deal between national and local government on a transformational policy that will be beneficial for the young people of Scotland and it is particularly pleasing that in our partnership working, Scottish Government has recognised that there are different models across Scotland to best meet the needs of our diverse communities.”
