A Good Time To Be 2

LearningAs you will be aware, Scottish Government has funded Early Learning and Childcare places for families who live in households in receipt of certain benefits or are under a kinship care order.  It is estimated that there are 224 eligible children in Midlothian and we therefore want to ensure that all families are aware of this great opportunity to have our youngest children identified so that they can access high quality Early Learning and Childcare to support their learning and development.

Please see attached  leaflet and poster for your information.
