Early Learning and Childcare Provision
All eligible two, three and four year olds are entitled to 1140 hours (pro rata) of funded Early Learning and Childcare (ELC). 1140 hours ELC is intended to support child development, help close the attainment gap through the provision of high quality services, and support parents to work, train or study. ELC can be accessed through local authority settings, partner provider nurseries and childminders. Parents can also choose to have a blended placement using more than one setting and/or childminder. Further ELC Information for parents is available via https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/registering-your-child-nursery and an ELC Parents Booklet https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/sites/default/files/elc_info_for_parents_booklet_rev_december_2019.pdf

Session 38 weeks, Monday – Friday 8.45am – 2.45pm
Park ELC provides pre-school education for children from Oban and the surrounding area. Staff work in partnership with parents to develop children’s learning experiences. This involves learning about, valuing and building on children’s prior learning experiences so that they become confident, eager and enthusiastic learners who are looking forward to starting school.
