August 2020 Nursery Intake – Important Update

Due to Covid19, the statutory duty to provide 1140 hours from August has been revoked and a decision made to re-phase the expansion programme. There is a commitment from the government that expansion will still be delivered in full, just to a different timetable than originally envisaged. This will mean we need to revisit our availability of places in each locality for August.

We are currently working on availability and letters will be sent out at the beginning of May to ask about preferences for settings and hours. Information will be coordinated centrally and then when places are allocated the ELC settings will send out further information at the beginning of June.

Should you have any specific concerns please email:
