Early Learning and Childcare COVID-19 Update – 3rd August 2021

The latest guidance received from the Scottish Government for ELC settings and Childminding services has been added to the Covid-19 Updates tab on the blog.

COVID-ELC – Changes to guidance – Note to Providers from Alison Cumming, Director, Early Learning and Childcare, provides an update advising of important changes to the guidance for Early Learning and Childcare and School-aged Childcare settings and Childminder services. Please find her letter HERE.

To help staff familiarise themselves with the guidance as quickly as possible, the Scottish Government have developed a ‘checklist’ of mitigations that sets out all of the key mitigations in the guidance, highlighting those that have changed since the end of the summer term in June. The checklist in not intended as a substitute for reading the full guidance.
