Early Learning and Childcare Pre-census Survey

Survey Background

This is an annual exercise carried out by ScotXed to prepare for our Early Learning and Childcare Census. We wish to identify which centres in your local authority provide Funded Early Learning and Childcare and also ensure that we have correct contact information for these centres.


2018 Survey

The Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) Pre-census Survey will be live from Monday 4 June, with a submission date of Friday 13 July

Returns are to be submitted via ProcXed: https://procxed.scotxed.net  Logins exist for our main ScotXed contacts. Usernames are of the form firstname.surname  If you have forgotten your password, you need to use “Request New Password” under Security on the ProcXed dashboard.  Please contact the ScotXed mailbox at elccensus@gov.scot if you require additional users to have access to the survey, or have any queries.

As per last year’s collection, we require details for all centres within your authority that are funded or partly funded by the authority and will be providing ELC on census week. 

The data you provide will be used to establish the centres that we communicate with as part of the main census.  ELC census week will be 17-21 September 2018. 

To simplify the process, information has been pre-populated, where data from last year is available.  Please use the online form to make any amendments and Submit when complete.
