As a school, we are looking to work alongside Little Learners – a private on-site Nursery provider- to extend our current provision for three and four year olds. We are very lucky to have an outstanding provider of Nursery education on our site and believe through working together ,we have an exciting opportunity to provide flexible provision for all parental needs, Monday to Friday from 7.30am till 5.30pm.
Hopefully you are aware that all parents of 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours free childcare. From September 2017 working parents/carers of 3 and 4 year olds may be eligible for a further 15 hours free childcare, if they meet certain criteria. The extended free childcare entitlement will be available to parents/carers of three- and four-year-olds where:
- both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family), and each parent earns, on approx: £115.00 per week (16 hours at min/liv wage) and less than £100,000 per year, or
- Both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the workplace on parental, maternity, paternity or adoption leave or statutory sick pay, or
- One parent is employed & the other parent has substantial caring responsibilities based on specific benefits received for caring, or
- One parent is employed & one parent is disabled or incapacitated based on receipt of specific benefits.
