On 15th June 2020 the Scottish Government published non-statutory guidance for early learning and childcare (ELC) providers in the private and third sectors to support a safe reopening of these settings during Phase 3 on 15th July 2020.
The guidance is based on a set of principles for all services across Scotland that recognises that safeguarding the health and wellbeing of the child, and adults who work with them, must be central to any plans to reopen.
The principles in this document support planning for reopening in a manner which is consistent with wider efforts to control transmission of the virus and protects the health of children, their families, and the staff group.
PKC are working together with all of our early learning and childcare partners to answer any queries they have regarding reopening and have issued guidance to support them. Families can find local partners on our website here and contact them directly to confirm reopening and to discuss suitable childcare options for their children.
