Firstly a massive thank you to all those who answered our online survey. We had a total of 104 responses from across Scotland.
This is a small sample in research terms but still provides interesting insight. We are trying to build up a picture of what childcare in Scotland looks like right now, a snapshot if you will before 1140 kicks in; how families are using the variety of options available to them, funded/private, outdoor or indoor, for how long and why?
It has also revealed many genuine concerns from families about use of outdoor nursery settings. We can extol the virtues as much as we like but without addressing these valid viewpoints, more children will miss out on this great early years experience. We are still analysing the results, future blog material for sure!
