We’re representing you on a local and national level
To make sure the voice of nurseries in Scotland is heard loud and clear, we work with our members in Scotland to represent the sector to government, local authorities and the media.

We contribute to the development of childcare policy and practice through strategic policy and planning groups, consultation events and stakeholder meetings with nurseries.
We gather and analyse the impact of government policies, guidance and pass on best practice.
NDNA Scotland worked with the Scottish Government and COSLA, in the creation of myjobscotland, a free recruitment website for private and third sector ELC providers (registered with the Care Inspectorate).
It was launched to support providers with their recruitment needs in the period leading up to the 1140 hours ELC expansion in 2020.
Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) Inclusion Fund
The fourth round of the Scottish Government's Early Learning & Childcare Inclusion Fund is open to applications.
The ELC Inclusion Fund provides funding to ELC settings to support children with additional support needs (ASN) in Scotland access their funded ELC entitlement. It funds staff working in ELC settings to receive appropriate training and fund resources, equipment and adaptations. Download the ELC Expansion Programme Update below.
