LOCAL NURSERIES SET TO BENEFIT FROM £1M WINTER OUTDOOR LEARNING FUND

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP is encouraging Nurseries and Early Learning Childcare (ELC) settings in the area to apply for Scottish Government funding to help children take part in outdoor learning and development, whatever the weather.

 

Ms Cunningham said:

“Nurseries and other settings are being encouraged to take learning outdoors to help stop the spread of COVID-19 but, even putting the pandemic to one side for a moment, outdoor play is increasingly being recognised as an incredibly important aspect of any child’s learning and development.

“No child should go without winter clothing when it gets colder and that is why the Scottish Government is plugging the gap for parents and ELC settings that are unable to provide clothing.

“The SNP Government is committing £1 million of funding to nurseries and other education centres to buy warm winter clothes, so their children can enjoy playing outside, regardless of the weather.

“The package will be available to all funded ELC centres and will ensure that the eligible children in their care have access to suitable outdoor clothing.

“I would urge all nurseries and ELC centres in my constituency to apply for their share of the £1m funding when it opens in January 2021 to ensure no child misses out on what is an extremely important stage of their learning.”
