How? – We claim the funding on your behalf and deduct it from your invoice.
The term following a child’s third birthday, children become entitled to Government funded educational sessions. The amount varies depending on the length of the term. If a child attends term time only they could claim 15 hours a week. The sessions can be taken to meet your requirements. The minimum session is 2 hours. This funding does not include meals.
Children can claim this entitlement at more than one setting.
(Pro rata for children attending fewer sessions).
The setting has a limited number of places for children eligible for the extended entitlement of 30 hours a week.
Working parents of children aged under 12 can use Tax-Free Childcare through the childcare service account, to pay registered childcare. The Government will top-up the money that is paid into the account. For every £8.00 you pay into the account the Government will add an extra £2.00. You can receive £2,000 per child per year, or £4,000 if disabled.
