Government funding

About

We are pleased to announce that Elms Montessori School and Day Nursery will be offering 30 hours funded childcare for eligible families, starting from September 2017.

All 3 and 4-year-olds in England currently receive 15 hours a week government funded early education. If their parents are living and working in England, 3 and 4-year-olds may be entitled to 30 hours funded childcare which is up to 1,140 hours per year in total!

If eligible you will be entitled to access the 30 funded hours from the beginning of the term following your child’s 3rd birthday.

The Benefits of Preschool

Many families increase their child’s attendance at nursery as they move into the preschool class. An increase in the number of days children attend can help prepare them for the transition to ‘big school’. Three and four year olds are especially keen to develop their social skills and a preschool environment can support this development especially well. Children also benefit from the expansive learning through play opportunities that a highly qualified early years professional can provide, ensuring they leave for school well prepared socially, academically and emotionally.

Eligibility

Work Requirements

The parent (and their partner where applicable) should be seeking the free childcare to enable them to work.Parents must earn or expect to earn the equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage over the coming three months. Where a parent is in a ‘start-up period’ (i.e. they are newly self-employed) they do not need to demonstrate that they meet the income criteria for 12 months.

Salary

Parents must earn or expect to earn the equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wageover the coming three months. This equates to £120 a week for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week for each parent between 21 and 24 years old and £56 a week for apprentices in their first year. You can’t get 30 hours free childcare if you, or your partner, expect to earn £100,000 or more.

This offer is for working families in England. If one or both parents is a non-EEA national, the parent applying must have recourse to public funds. If one or both parents is a non-EEA national and the parent applying does not have recourse to public funds, you will not be eligible.
