As you may be aware, from September 2017 the government are offering 30 funded hours of childcare for 3 and 4 year olds whose parents meet the following criteria:
Your child will be aged 3 or 4+
- Both parents must be working, or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family
- Each parent earns on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage
- Each parent must have an annual income of less than £100,000
- You live in England.
We have a number of additional places to be able to offer 30 hours of term time only education at Highfield. We will try to accommodate every parent’s needs, so please feel free to talk to us if you have any questions or queries.
To check eligibility for the 30 extended hours provision, go to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. Once you have created an account, you will need to obtain a code and bring it in to nursery, this will confirm your eligibility. Once we have the code we can confirm your 30 hour entitlement and places will be offered on a first come first served basis.
