In order to ensure that the Funding Follows the Child approach will be introduced in August 2020 alongside the statutory roll-out of the expanded entitlement to 1140 hours the Scottish Government have produced the following:

national standardFunding follows the child and the national standard for early learning and childcare providers: principles and practice – gov.scot

This document sets out the approach and National Standard which all providers wishing to deliver the funded entitlement will have to meet.

The criteria are set in order to ensure that the funded ELC entitlement is delivered in high quality settings and focus on what children and their families should expect from the ELC experience, regardless of where they access their funded entitlement.

In addition to this document you can access a ‘Frequently asked questions for local authorities and providers’ document here Funding follows the child and the national standard for early learning and childcare providers: guidance for local authorities – gov.scot
