Title of Policy
The Provision of Early Learning and Childcare (Specified Children) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2020
Summary of aims and desired outcomes of Policy
This is an amendment to secondary legislation in order to entitle all children to funded early learning and childcare when they defer entry to primary 1 (P1) for a year.
The aim of amending the eligibility criteria as currently drafted is to ensure that parents decisions on whether to defer their child’s P1 entry can be based on the best interests of the child and not whether they automatically qualify for access to funded ELC.
