Extended childcare entitlement 30 hours childcare pilot
This year we are part of the trial for 30 hours free childcare. We have 31 families benefitting from this new initiative. We are now full and unable to offer any more places for this year. We are working with Acorns Teaching School to offer training about what we have learnt from the trial and to supporting settings with their preparation for this new initiative in September 2017.
From September 2017, 30 hours free childcare will be rolled out nationally to all parents of 3 and 4 year old children who are working and meet the eligibility criteria. We will be offering 24 places in the school, please contact the school office if you are eligible and wish to register your interest for a place.
Our offer for 30 hours is Monday to Friday 9.30am-3.30pm term time only. Parents requiring the early slot, starting school at 8.45am, can purchase this for £4 a day, £20 a week. This must be booked and paid for one month in advance. The children will start their day in the Rainbow class and then move to the Nursery class in the afternoon.
