30hr Funding Survey
The Government is extending the free early education and childcare entitlement for eligible 3 and 4 year olds from 15 hours to 30 hours per week from September 2017. All 3 and 4 year olds will still be entitled to 15 free hours per week.
The additional 15 hours will be available to families where:
- Both parents are working (or the sole parent in a lone parent family) and
- Each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent of 16 hours at national minimum wage or national living wage (approx. £120 per week depending on their age) and
- Each parent earns less than £100,000 per year
We are still waiting for further information from Kent County Council and we are still unsure whether it would be beneficial for Cobham Community Pre-School to offer the additional funded hours.
Please could you help us by completing this short survey. (We understand that your circumstances may change between now and September):
