Nursery enrolment: Enrol your child by 6 March 2020

 

Families with a child born between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018 are being encouraged to enrol their child in nursery before 6 March 2020 for 2020/21.

 

Older children, or those who have not yet registered for an early learning and childcare place, should also register by this date.

 

To register for a place:

  • Visit www.eastlothian.gov.uk/nurseryenrolment and find out about the different options available in council nursery settings from August 2020.
  • Download a nursery registration form from the website.
  • Complete the form and take it to your preferred (first) choice nursery. You should also take your child’s birth certificate.
  • If you are choosing a blend of more than one provider, apply to your council nursery first and then speak to your funded provider – private nursery, childminder or community group – about what hours you would like from them.
  • Make sure your application is in before 6 March 2020. Applications will still be accepted after this date, but they will not be considered in the first allocation process. Please get in touch with the Early Years and Childcare team if you have any questions or you can’t register by 6 March 2020.

Target Time in P.1

On Monday “Target Time” was introduced in Primary 1. Throughout the week the children have a go at six challenges which are set up around the classroom. Every time they complete an activity successfully, the children take a different coloured lollipop stick and put it in their pot. By the end of the week they should have managed to make a rainbow! The boys and girls all agree that this is a fun way to learn!
