Partnership With Parents

 

Communication between nursery and home is essential and our aim is for us all to work together to provide a safe, stimulating and exciting home from home atmosphere, where you and your child feel happy, comfortable and relaxed at all times. We believe that a child’s family is a central part of our nursery.

 

The time you as a parent and members of your family spend with us contributes to your child’s development and will also build trust between your home and the nursery. To encourage this we will hold annual parents evenings, social events throughout the year. In addition to this the nursery staff will be available at all times to exchange information and discuss your child’s development.

Free Education

 

The Free Education entitlement offers every eligible 3 and 4 year old child access to free early years education. Below is some information about the Nursery Education grant…

 

It is available to each child the term after their 3rd Birthday.

 

The maximum number of hours a parent can claim is 15 hours per week. You are able to split the claim over two childcare providers as long as you don’t exceed the 15 hours.

 

When your child is eligible you will have to sign a parent declaration form and let the nursery see proof of your child’s identity and date of birth.

 

Early years funding will be reflected in you invoices where the 15 free hours will be clearly stated, any additional hours your child attends will be charged at the normal nursery rate.

 

If your child is only attending the free 15 hours our nursery grant sessions are listed below…

 

  • A.M – 8am – 1pm (5hrs)
  • P.M – 1pm – 6pm (5hrs)
  • Full day – 8am – 6pm (10hrs)

 

So the grant could be accessed by taking 1 x full day and 1 x half day or 3 x half days to total 15 hrs.

 

If you have any questions regarding the nursery education grant, please do not hesitate to ask.

 

We are now able to offer funded hours to 2 year olds who are eligible - please contact us or your local children's centre for more information.
