Early Learning and Childcare Delivery Progress Reports

Since the beginning of the expansion of funded early learning and childcare (ELC), the Improvement Service has collected and analysed data on the progress of the delivery of the expansion programmes across local authorities.

The objective of these data collections is to understand the status of the ELC sector across the country regarding uptake, workforce and capacity at regular intervals. This report informs the Joint Delivery Board, co-chaired by the Minister for Children and Young People and the COSLA Spokesperson for Children and Young People. The Joint Delivery Board is responsible for reviewing implementation of the 1140 hours expansion across all 32 local authorities and for agreeing actions to put support in place where that may be required.
