Early learning and childcare for 3 and 4 year olds
When your child reaches the age of 2, you can put their name on the waiting list of the early learning and childcare nursery school or class of your choice.
A child gets a place the month after their 3rd birthday where there is space for them.
It is not practical to admit children to a local authority Early Learning and Childcare setting in December or June.
- Children born in November start in January.
- Children born in May start in August.
Your first choice may not always be available, but your child is guaranteed a place as long as you live in Midlothian.
