Exploring examples of how the themes of the ELC Reference Design have been adopted in the expansion programme.
To support the 1140 hours ELC expansion programme, the Scottish Government provided capital funding of £476 million and worked in partnership with local authorities and the SFT to deliver increased setting capacity, and to develop settings to support flexible, accessible, affordable and quality early learning and childcare. This session will reflect on key aspects of functionality identified in the ELC Reference Designs and how these have been developed into completed projects.
