The Committee have written a letter to parents of current children offering the extra 15 hours of funding, if applicable. Additional hours will then be offered to children already confirmed as starting in September, followed by children on the waiting list.
LETTER FROM THE COMMITTEE
We are aware that parents would like to organise themselves for September and we are working our way through our admissions lists to ensure that spaces are offered as soon as possible.
For more information on the 30 hours funding please visit the government website: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
The government has launched a new website, Childcare Choices
, to help parents check what childcare support is be available to them as it prepares to roll out the 30-hour funded childcare offer and tax-free childcare later this year.
The website includes a Childcare Calculator which parents can use to compare all the government’s childcare offers. Those using the site can also sign up for alerts about the tax-free childcare scheme, due to start on 28 April, and the 30-hours offer.
Parents will be able apply for both tax-free childcare and the 30-hours offer at the same time through a new digital childcare service that the government is preparing to launch.
