Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener (Stewart Maxwell) Good morning and welcome to the 10th meeting in 2014 of the Education and Culture Committee. I remind everyone that electronic devices should be switched off at all times because they interfere with the broadcasting system.

Today is the second evidence session of our inquiry. We shall cov...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener Thank you. You have raised a number of interesting issues.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener I want to understand what you mean by that. How will the staff be working with more children? They will work with different children, and the provision might be organised differently, but will the overall number of hours that workers cover not be the same?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener A number of members want to come in, so I ask for brief questions and relatively brief answers.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener Who wants to have a go at answering those questions?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener Mary Scanlon can ask another very brief question—a lot of members want to come in, Mary.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener Colin Beattie can ask a brief supplementary question. I emphasise that it must be brief, Colin.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener It is on page 19 of paper 3.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener To clarify, how does childcare fall off a cliff when they go to school? To take the white paper as an example, if we had 1,140 hours for all one-year-olds to four or five-year-olds, and they then go to primary school, which they attend for 1,140 hours, where is the cliff?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
The Convener Do you accept that there is no cliff? Pre-school children are in childcare for up to 475 hours—that is the current figure, which will increase to 600 hours—and, when they go to school, they have 1,140 hours, although I know that what is provided in school is not childcare. I accept what you say abou...
