Drivers and barriers to uptake of Early Learning and Childcare amongst 2 year olds

Executive Summary

In order to help improve the uptake of free ELC for 2 year olds, the Scottish Government commissioned research from Ipsos MORI to understand the practical issues that influence uptake rates, to allow policy to be tailored accordingly. The study examined:

• parental awareness of ELC provision

• why parents engage or do not engage

• the profile of families engaging (or not) with the provision

• the barriers and facilitators for local authorities and key delivery partners in promoting and achieving maximum uptake by eligible 2 year olds.
