The Scottish government has now published its guide for creating outdoor play experiences in early learning and childcare. The government is committed to including increased opportunities for outdoor play in its early learning and childcare expansion programme. The guide is also aimed at schools and out of school care services. It is likely that the guide will mean that employers will move ahead with plans to expand outdoor learning. This may lead to ELC staff and other UNISON members being asked to spend increased time working outdoors. It is therefore likely that branches will be working with employers across education teams regarding changes to members work.
