Following the statement by the Scottish Education Minister John Swinney at 2pm this afternoon, we now have updated information on the current situation.
We were advised that the private and third sector providers may remain open so long as they review their operating models to support the children of key workers and the families of vulnerable children. Whilst we wait for clarification of the definition of key workers, we will be open for business as usual.
Could you please inform your nursery manager of your current situation to help us assess the overall childcare requirement throughout each setting.
This is an unprecedented and fluid situation which changes on a daily basis and we will keep you updated accordingly.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding at this challenging time.
