Possible increase in nursery hours

The Scottish Government has proposed to increase the provision of free childcare from 600 hours to 1140 hours per year for children who are 3 or 4 years old, as well as for vulnerable 2 year olds.  With this in mind the Government is conducting a survey exploring how parents would wish to use this increase. The results of this survey will help guide policy on early years child care provision. In order for the survey to produce representative results it is important that we reach as many parents of 3 or 4 year old children from as wide a variety of backgrounds as possible. This includes those who do not currently use free child-care provision.

The survey is available at the following link. It should take around 10 minutes to complete.
