Across our setting, we strive to maintain a warm and welcoming atmosphere for both children and families from all areas of the local community. We take care to ensure all key information is easily accessible either here on our website or displayed on a comprehensive notice board within our setting, which is updated weekly.
We encourage and promote positive regard of differences in abilities, strictly following inclusion guidelines set out by the government in order to support both children and parents/carers with disabilities to be able to take part fully in all activities within our setting. We carefully monitor all children’s needs, ensuring that no inadvertent discrimination takes place. We send out questionnaires to parents/carers regularly, giving them the opportunity to put forward suggestions or make requests in order to ensure that a broad range of needs are accommodated. We are also happy to offer flexibility in terms of attendance patterns as we are keen to meet the needs of each individual child and their families.
Children aged 3 and 4
All families can claim up to 15 hours per week of childcare or early years education for children aged 3 and 4. Working parents may be able to claim for additional hours to support childcare costs; this is known as “30 hours”.
Looked after children within this age range can claim 30 hours if they meet certain criteria, and if deemed appropriate for the child.
Children aged 2
If you receive financial support, you could be eligible for a maximum of 15 hours funded childcare for your child once they turn 2. Looked after children automatically qualify.
