Early Learning and Childcare

Welcome to Orkney's Early Learning and Childcare website.

All children are entitled to use 600 hours of free early learning and childcare from the term after their third birthday. You can use these hours in local authority nurseries, at private partner providers, and with child-minders who are in partnership to deliver free hours. You can find out more about what each setting offers, and who is in partnership by following the links in the menu at the side.
