EARLY YEARS FUNDING
At Kiddywink’s we are able to offer your child their entitlement to Early Years Funding. Every child, the term after their 3rd birthday is given 570 hours of free childcare and education to use at a setting of their choice each year. We are very excited to be able to now offer you this funding ALL YEAR ROUND (11 hours per week EVERY WEEK), Instead of the previous method of TERM TIME ONLY (15 hours per week term time only).
This STRETCHED funding (spread 11 hours per week) allows the maximum flexibility to you and your families commitments outside of Kiddywink’s. You no longer have to work to term time only.
Please follow this link http://www.devon.gov.uk/eyef for much more information or contact us at Kiddywink’s with any questions.
We are also able to offer your child free childcare and education from the age of 2 years. However you as a parent have to apply for this, please use this link http://www.devon.gov.uk/index/childrenfamilies/disc_services/disc-childcare/disc-2gether.htm
2gether funding can also be STRETCHED as above being used 11 hours per week, all year round, instead of the previous 15 hours per week term time only.
BOTH FORMS OF FUNDING CAN BE USED 11 HOURS PER WEEK ALL YEAR ROUND OR 15 HOURS PER WEEK TERM TIME ONLY.
I have worked hard to ensure our policies are of the highest standard if you
feel you would like to know more or require any specific information regarding
this then please let me know.
Hopefully this will be enough information for you to make the difficult
decision as to which childcare provider entrust your children with.
TWEENIE TIME AND ‘345’ TIME
At intervals during the day we separate the older and younger children to allow for activities that are tailored to their individual needs. We use these times for Adult Initiated Play Opportunities that centre on the children that are present during that session, their needs desires and next steps are all focused on during this time.
Please feel free to pop in and join in with one of the sessions so you can really see what kinds of things we get up to!!
