Dear Parent/Carer

Thank you for your application for a place at .........Nursery.

We would like to apologise for the delay in informing you of the outcome of your application.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, nurseries across Scotland are currently operating with certain mitigations in place to ensure the safety of all children and staff in the setting. These mitigations can impact on the number of places and pattern of attendance which each nursery is able to offer.

As we begin to move out of the pandemic, these mitigations are currently under review by the Scottish Government. We are hopeful that updated guidance for academic year 2021-2022 will be available by the middle of June 2021.

As soon we have this information, we will be able to confirm which sessions we can offer your child. Please be reassured that all eligible children in Stirling will be able to access their full 1140 hours of funding for early learning and childcare, although this may not always be available in your first choice of nursery.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this time.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can offer any further advice or support.
