Early Learning and Childcare Consultation


Under section 50(1)(a) of the 2014 Children and Young People Act, Education Authorities must consult with persons who appear to be representative of parents and carers of children under school age in their area, about how they should make early learning and childcare available. This consultation must be carried out at least once every 2 years.  Our last consultation took place in 2021.   Under Section 50(1)(b) of the 2014 Act, Education Authorities must have regard to the views expressed in the consultation and, in moving forward, they should indicate how they intend to make early learning and childcare available. The outcome of this consultation will inform how we do this.    This public consultation will be open for a six week period from 13th March 2023 - 28th April 2023.

Final Report

Consultation feedback report will be compiled by 31/6/23. Information gathered from the consultation will be published on www.fife.gov.uk/earlyyears
