More nursery places for Edinburgh Southside
We call upon the City of Edinburgh Council to improve the provision of accessible nursery class places for children living in the Marchmont, Sciennes and Grange districts of the city. Children are entitled to a fully funded nursery place from the term after their third birthday. The City Council is currently failing to provide adequate services to allow all children to take up a nursery place, in their local area, until after their fourth birthday, despite them frequently having been registered on a waiting list since their second birthday. This situation must be rectified.
