30 Hours Free Childcare
Childcare from September 2017
30 Hour Free Childcare Entitlement
From September 2017 there are plans to offer additional free childcare for families. Further details are now available, you can check whether you are eligible and how the scheme will work. For more information please ask the school office or follow this link:
30 Hours Free Childcare - Cheshire West and Chester
The link also includes a questionnaire which will help us to see what interest there is in our area and for our school, so please fill it in. You can request a paper copy of the questionnaire at the school office.
For those entitled, our school is planning to offer the free 30 hours in our Nursery. If you are not eligible, additional sessions can be paid for. Therefore if your child only receives 15 hours of free childcare a week in September, you will be able to pay for further sessions at our Nursery to make up the 30 hours. Families will also be able to extend their hours of childcare by booking in with Buddies (our before and after school club), meaning that you can have a combination of Nursery and after school care from 8am – 6pm five days a week.
As usual, we will also offer paid childcare during holiday times through clubs and activities at school.
If you have any further questions there is some information on our website, we will keep you informed in the newsletter or you can always pop in and ask.
