Transitional Support Fund for Childcare Providers

The Scottish Government has made funding available, through a Transitional Support Fund, for childcare providers to support them to adapt their settings safely to reopen.

The Scottish Government is aware that Scotland's childcare sector has been working extremely hard to ensure their settings have put in place the measures that can give staff and parents confidence ahead of their safe reopening.

Taking these steps has resulted in extra costs for childcare providers, at a time when their income has also reduced.

The Transitional Support Fund aims to help childcare providers in the private and third sectors, including out-of-school care providers, meet the extra costs incurred to comply with public health guidance in response to coronavirus (COVID-19).
