Children are welcome to join our Preschool from the age of two to five.
GOVERNMENT FUNDED SESSIONS
We offer funded places for up to 30 hours per week for 3 to 4 year olds. This will be subject to eligibility and demand. In addition to being able to offer funded places to children from age 3, we are also able to offer two year olds funded places for families who meet the set criteria. Please ask for details and see government guidance at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
CHILDCARE VOUCHERS & TAX FREE CHILDCARE SCHEME
We will continue to accept employer paid childcare vouchers for those still buying them under the old government scheme. This scheme is now closed to new applicants and has been replaced with the tax free childcare scheme. This enables you to pay money into to a new childcare account and get additional contributions from the government up to a maximum of £,2000 per annum. For more details and to see if you are eligible go to www.childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk
If you or your partner work at least 16 hours a week you may be entitled to financial assistance in the form of Family Tax Credits. www.hmrc.gov.uk
SETTLING YOUR CHILD INTO PRESCHOOL
To make your child's transition from home to preschool as smooth as possible we will arrange for you and your child to visit prior to them starting. If more time is needed to settle in we are happy to accommodate. Your child's Keyworker will gather information about your child to assist in making them feel happy and comfortable in their new environment.
