Where Howgate Shopping Centre, Falkirk


Due to the current situation a decision has been made to close the Communication Hub and return staff to base. We are still keen to communicate about our 1140 journey and options for parents. We can be contacted at nams@falkirk.gov.uk or 01324 506611 and 506661.

The way Early Learning and Childcare is delivered is changing with the hours you receive increasing to 1140 a year. This can either be taken as 30 hours a week during school term time or 23 hours and 20 minutes across the full year and you can now 'blend' your child’s care by choosing up to two providers. Blended care means you have the flexibility to share the funded hours across two providers.

The Council’s Early Learning and Childcare team will be available in the Howgate Shopping Centre to answer all your ELC queries and offer advice and support with your child’s application form.

Don’t miss this opportunity to come along and find out more about 1140 and how this impacts on your child’s early learning and childcare.

There will be events where you can bring your child along for a play, storytelling session and find out about some of the exciting initiatives that are taking place in our ELC establishments.

The drop-in is also suitable for anyone interested in working in early learning and childcare!

We will also hold information from each of our private partner nurseries and childminders in your local area.

We hope you come along to meet the ELC team.
