Strong Start for 2 Year Olds

The Government has committed to providing 600 hours of free Early Learning and Childcare for eligible two years olds whose parents meet certain benefits criteria.

Please note that whilst there will be places available in various schools across Perth and Kinross these will be limited and there are no guarantees that parents will be able to access a place in the nursery class of their first choice.

Eligible children will join our Strong Start  programme at Pitlochry School Nursery and will be able to access a maximum of five mornings or afternoons each week. Sessions run from 8:55am and 12:48pm Monday to Friday.

From August 2018 our Strong Start places will be available in the morning and afternoon. The five sessions can be worked as a combination of AM, PM or full day access 8:55am to 4.00pm.  For more information please phone the school office on the number below.

Some two year children may be eligible for a place if a parent is receiving any of the following benefits:

Income support

Jobseekers Allowance (income based)

Employment and Support Allowance (income based)

Incapacity Benefit or Severe Disablement Allowance

State Pension Credit
