Childcare and Covid

Many parents in Edinburgh are balancing childcare/homeschooling and work.

This has meant that relying on understanding employers and informal childcare is the only way many people have been able to get by.

Bruce said, "I have 3 children under 6 and understand the difficulties parents face. The balance between being there to support my young family and continuing to be a good employee is not easily struck.

"It is important to highlight that key workers are entitled to childcare and so long as neither is working from home they will get a place at a local childcare hub."

Details of the rules can be found here.

Edinburgh City Council update their information regularly and you can get local news here.

For those of us working from home, there is also an allowance for childminders and a degree of informal childcare, more details of which can be found here.
