Early Learning and Childcare – Strong Start
(Two Year old Places)
The Government has committed to providing 600 hours of free Early Learning and Childcare for eligible two years olds whose parents meet certain benefits criteria.
Please note that whilst there will be places available in various schools across Perth and Kinross these will be limited and there are no guarantees that parents will be able to access a place in the nursery class of their first choice.
Eligible children will join our Strong Start programme at The Community School of Auchterarder and will be able to access a maximum of five mornings each week. Sessions run from 08:45 to 11:57 Monday to Friday.
From August 2017 our Strong Start places will be available in the morning and afternoon. The five sessions can be worked as a combination of AM, PM (11:57 to 15:09) or full day access (08:45 to 15:09). For more information please phone the school office on the number below.
Some two year children may be eligible for a place if a parent is receiving any of the following benefits:
Jobseekers Allowance (income based)
Employment and Support Allowance (income based)
Incapacity Benefit or Severe Disablement Allowance
State Pension Credit
