  • Deferred entry

Split or blended placements for Early Years

Due to the Covid19 pandemic split placements aren't currently available, with the exception where one of the providers is a childminder. This is to reduce transmission of the virus as much as possible.

You can't use this form to apply for a split placement with a childminder at the moment. However, you should apply for the main placement (whether this is a childminder or nursery), and more information will be available in the next few weeks to allow you to apply for the additional placement.

You can find out more information and what we do with your information on the website (opens in new window).

This form will time out after 20 minutes inactivity, but your progress will be saved and you'll be able to log back into your MyScotBorders (opens in new window) account to complete it.
