Where Kids come first

1140 Hours Free Funded Childcare

Model 2

I can provide any additional care you require while also allowing you to use your free funded hours at selected local nurseries.

This would be available if you chose Model 2 – The Block Model

Your funded hours can be used as 5 blocks over 48 weeks which provides cover during holidays when other nurseries may be closed. The blocks can be used as 5 mornings, 5 afternoons, or 2½ days. Or you can choose 6 blocks (3 full days) in term time only.

I can offer care for any additional days or half days you require over your chosen blocks at nursery.

Choosing a childminder for additional days required is often a little cheaper than paying your chosen nursery for these days and can allow your child a more varied childcare experience and access to a greater number of activities and local resources as well as trips further afield. They can also benefit from a smaller setting and an individual and personal ‘home from home’ environment and can provide your child with some stability and continuity of care if they have been attending a childminder since they were a baby.

If you would like your child to attend one of the nurseries below for funded care and would like to discuss additional days and my current availability please get in touch.
