National survey on the expansion of free early learning and childcare in Scotland

National survey on the expansion of free early learning and childcare in Scotland

As you’ll be aware the Scottish Government is planning to nearly double the hours of free early learning and childcare by 2020. Because the views of parents and carers are crucial for the success of this expansion, the Government has commissioned independent researchers to undertake a survey of parents. The survey link is here. We encourage as many parents to contribute to this Survey Dunbar Primary School has one of the biggest Nursery Provisions in Scotland and it is vital that your views are gathered  for the Dunbar Community the implementation in 2020.


 All parents taking part will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw and have the chance to win one of 10 x GBP100 cash prizes.

 The survey is carried out for the Scottish Government by Craigforth, an independent research company. If you have any questions about this survey please send a message to:
