To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Renfrewshire Council regarding the provision of childcare in the Paisley area.
Answered by: Maree Todd 3 October 2018
The Scottish Government meets regularly with local authorities to discuss the delivery of the Early Learning and Childcare entitlement. These meetings can be through a number of routes, including one-to-one meetings or through engagement and working groups whose membership includes Scottish Government and local authorities.
Scottish Government officials have also been in contact with Renfrewshire Council in recent weeks regarding developments at Hillview Nursery in the Ferguslie Park area of Paisley.
