Early Learning and Childcare

Source: The Scottish Government

Description: This publication pulls together statistics on all aspects of publicly funded early learning and childcare in Scotland.  Please note this collection was formerly referred to as pre-school education and changed to reflect the new provision under the Children and Young People Act which came into force on 1 August 2014.

Key Variables: Number of centres, staff and registrations.

Figures available by: Type of centre, registration stage, whether children have English as an additional language, with Additional Support Needs or with a Coordinated Support Plan and by local authority, teachers by FTE and headcount

Frequency of Publication: Annual

Note: The first September Pre-school Education publication was published in December 2010. Previous years publications were the combined pre-school and childcare publications which are available at Pre-school and Childcare Publications.

The ELC Data Consultation took place in early 2016.  Details can be found here.
