Nursery entitlement is changing

The Scottish Government has made a commitment to almost double the number of funded hours currently available for families, from 600 hours to 1140 hours per year

Outdoor learning

We are working hard to develop a new, improved and flexible service for parents and carers across North Lanarkshire. These changes will be in place by the 2020/21 school term.

The extra hours will be available to all children aged three- and four-years old, as well as some two-year-olds. The focus will be on flexibility for families, as well as an emphasis on quality and a strong connection with outdoor learning and learning through play. Funding can be used during school term-time or could be spread throughout the year where applicable.
