Nursery Funding Written Answer, 16/07/15 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Annabel Goldie's (Con) question asking the Scottish Government how many children who were eligible to receive nursery education it funded in each local authority area in (a) 2013-14 and (b) 2014-15 and it will fund in 2015-16.

The Minister for Children and Young People, Fiona McLeod, replied that the Scottish Government provides local authorities funding for the free entitlement for all eligible children. The number of funded registrations and estimated number of children eligible for the early learning and childcare free entitlement in each local authority are published annually as part of the summary statistics for schools publication. These figures can be found in the additional early learning and childcare tables at the following link:
