To ask the Scottish Government further to the findings of the publication, A Blueprint for 2020: the Expansion of Early Learning and Childcare in Scotland, what its position is on the provision of out of school care.
Answered by: Mark McDonald 11 November 2016
We are currently working closely with the Scottish Out of School Care Network to develop a new policy framework for out of school care. The framework will be developed under the auspices of the Early Learning and Childcare Strategic Forum, whose remit is to develop and drive a strategic vision for high quality, flexible early learning and childcare in Scotland - integrated with an out of school care system - that is affordable and accessible for all.
