If the following applies to your family, West Lothian Council could pay for your child's place at Uphall Playgroup.

 

Two-year-old children whose parents are not in work and in receipt of certain benefits are entitled to up to 600 hours of free early learning and childcare during the year before they start nursery.

Two-year-olds with kinship carers or parent-appointed guardians are also eligible, regardless of the family income.

Children are eligible for up to 600 hours of pre-school provision from the start of the first term after their 2nd birthday, where the parent or carer is in receipt of

• Income Support

• Job Seekers Allowance (income based)

• Employment Support Allowance (income based)

• Incapacity Benefit / Severe Disablement Allowance or

• Pension Credit

 

In 2015/6 the scheme is planned to expand to children in families with other benefits or low income.
