Golden Ticket Funding Information for 2 year old child places
Letters with the new Golden ticket funding have now been sent out to all families who have children who should be eligible for the 2yr old funding in January 2021 from the Local authority (Click HERE for details).
What is Golden Ticket Funding about?
The golden ticket funding letter invites parents to contact a setting of their choice for their child to claim the 15hrs funding available to families who meet the set criteria.
The invitation encourages the possibility for parents to return to work, or go to college, while their child is safe and secure and receiving high-quality child care and education in a registered setting.
Families are able to apply for a child place the “term after the child turns 2yrs old” and receive 15 hours free funded nursery hours.
. In the event your chosen nursery is in one of our nursery settings, we claim the funding on your behalf and it is deducted from your childcare invoice.
Hours can be taken to suit individual family needs for the childcare, we tend to offer it as below where possible; –
5 x 3hr am sessions – 9.00-12.00 Free funded hours
13,00-16.00 Free funded hours
Or a school day – 9.00-12.00 (parent charged for one hr plus lunch)13.00-16.00
Or 3 x am – 8.00-13.00 Free funded hrs only charged for food
3 x pm – 13.00-18.00 Free funded hrs only charged for food.
We are also able to add extra hrs to the sessions which are charged to parents if this is needed. So many varied options are available, so you only pay for what you need, we try and use flexible booking system to meet individual needs.
