Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA) is really keen to hear from parents and carers about your experiences (good and bad) of accessing free or ‘funded hours’ of Early Learning and Childcare (ELC), either through a childminder or another childcare provider (i.e. nursery) and how much this supports your family childcare requirements.

We would ask that you please complete this important survey which should take no more than 5-10 minutes of your time.

Your experiences will be of great value in feeding into on-going national discussions with the Scottish Government about how much this is meeting parents’ needs.
