The Early Learning and Childcare Audit from SCMA

The Early Learning and Childcare Audit 2019 will be published Tuesday 8 October, providing an overview (by local authority) of childminders providing funded ELC hours to eligible two, three and four-year olds in Scotland.

Our Early Learning and Childcare audit assesses the current use of childminding services in Scotland in relation to the delivery of funded Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) to eligible two year olds. By contacting every local authority in Scotland to obtain data, the report draws together a national picture on the current use of childminding services to deliver funded ELC. Through analysis of the information, the report goes on to explain the importance of the inclusion of childminding services in the delivery of ELC in order to protect the future of this workforce in Scotland.
