How Much Does it Cost?
From August 2021 the Scottish Government is expanding funded Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) provision from 600 hours to 1140 hours per child, per year. This ensures that eligible two-year-olds and all 3 to 5 year old children, have access to funded early learning and childcare. Willow Den will work closely with the City of Edinburgh Council by applying to become a partner provider, offering funded childcare places for children from 3 years old to school age.
You can choose to use your 1140 funded hours with more than one nursery, this is called a split or blended placement. For families requiring more than 1140 hours of childcare, additional hours are available to purchase. This is called ‘wrap-around’ care.
More information is coming on our fees and funded places soon. In the meantime, why not sign-up for our newsletter to stay in the loop.
