From September 2017 new GOV initiative are providing 30 hours a week of free childcare for working parents and Charley’s Angels WILL be providing this (not everybody will).
We take childcare vouchers
Free Nursery Education
All children from the school term after their third birthday are entitled to 15 hours funded nursery education per week for 38 weeks of the year during term time. This entitlement continues until the term after the child’s fifth birthday when compulsory schooling begins. These funded hours must be taken over a minimum of three sessions to ensure your child receives the maximum benefit of this early education Nursery Education is funded by Kirklees directly to the nursery; the funded period is free to you.
We charge for meals and snacks and any childcare that you need before or after the funded period.
Most parents will be able to enjoy a straightforward reduction in nursery fees. The entitlement needs to be spread across three sessions so if your child attends for less than this ask the nursery manager how you can access the full fifteen hours.
Childcare Tax Credit
Families who are in work and who pay for Ofsted-registered childcare can receive financial help through tax credits. Please check with HM Revenue & Customs http://www.hmrc.gov.uk or with your local Children & Families Information Service for further information.
Childcare Vouchers are one of the ways your employer can support you to pay for childcare with a registered provider. Employers can offer you the opportunity to pay your childcare costs through a salary sacrifice, known as Childcare Vouchers. To find out more information please speak to the Nursery Manager or contact your local Children & Families Information Service.
For more information on financial support and Free Early Learning & Care for 2, 3 & 4 year old children, please visit the Kirklees Council’s Free Early Learning & Care website.
Tax-Free Childcare & 30 hours free early education
Tax-Free Childcare and 30 hours free early education and childcare are new government schemes to help parents with the cost of childcare. Both schemes can be applied for through a single online application.
Parents will be able to open a new childcare account. For every £8 a parent pays into their childcare account, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can get up to £2,000 government support per child per year towards their childcare costs. They can then use this money to pay their childcare provider.
All 3 and 4 year olds are already entitled to 15 hours of free early education. From September 2017 there will be an additional 15 hours of free childcare available for families that meet the Government’s eligibility criteria.
