Parents of children continuing in nursery will be receiving information from Aberdeen City Council’s Early Years Team to update you on your admissions application made to the Local Authority setting of your choice for your child/children.
The planned work to deliver the expansion of Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) from 600 hours to1140 hours has been disrupted due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions and the ongoing response to the pandemic. Regrettably, the delay caused by this disruption to the ELC expansion capital programme and the need for physical distancing arrangements when nursery settings return mean we are unable to provide additional hours of ELC. The Scottish Government recognises the impact of the pandemic on the ELC expansion programme and has temporarily removed the statutory duty to offer expanded hours.
The information from the Early Years Team that you will receive will further explain the procedures that now have to be followed for Session 2020/21
