Is your child 3 years old before 31 December 2019? Now is the time to check if you are eligible for 30 hours of childcare. All 3-year-olds children receive 15 hours of childcare per week (term time). Children of working parents may be eligible for an additional 15 hours. Visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk now to find out if this applies to you. If you don’t apply before 31 December you will have to wait until April 2020 to take up your additional hours.
If you are already benefiting from the 30 hours don’t forget to re-validate your eligibility every 3 months via your online childcare
To put your child's name on our waiting list please email us at email@example.com with your child's name, date of birth and when you'd like your child to start with us.
You will contact you before your child is due to start to discuss the sessions we have available and to arrange settling in sessions. To provide appropriate care we have a self-limited number of places for 2 year olds and we operate an admissions policy based on the date of submission of application form to ensure fairness.
Parent involvement & rota
Research shows that children learn better when their parents are involved as they are the first and the most important educators of their children. Parents and carers are very welcome in our pre-school to help whenever they wish. It also gives parents the opportunity to take an active part in the group, to see what happens there and to talk about it afterwards with their child. In addition, a rota system provides a valuable opportunity for all children to see their own parents/carers in a new role.There are many ways that parents support our pre-school and we consider it a particular strength of the pre-school that our parents are so involved. Parents help not just with running the sessions but also as committee members, fundraisers or as our representatives in the community.
