Early Learning and Childcare Provision


All eligible two, three and four year olds are entitled to 600 hours (pro rata) of free Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) and, for the first time, some two year olds will be eligible. This will help young children gain vital language and learning skills, improve their social development and help them do better at school when it comes. It will also support parents to work, train or study. 


Please see Argyll and Bute Early-years for further information and for details of the nearest establishment/s offering early learning and childcare.



Visits of Prospective Parents/Carers


Parents who are seeking a place for their child are very welcome to contact the school to arrange a visit. 


Once your child has been allocated a place you will be invited along to meet the staff and children, to find out more about the curriculum and to share information about your child.
