Funded 2 year old places

Our school nursery is expanding to take a limited number of funded 2 year olds

 

 

We are inviting those who may be eligible for funded (15 hrs a week) early education and childcare for their two year old to register their interest.  You may have received a postcard from Oxfordshire County Council with a code on the reverse.

 

What is funded early education and childcare?

For those eligible the government funds free childcare for eligible 2 year olds. This works out as 15 hours a week, either 5 mornings or 5 afternoons during term time.

All eligible two year olds are able to apply for a place to start the term after their birthday.

 

Child’s 2nd birthday is between:

When you can claim:

1 January to 31 March

the beginning of Summer term on or after 1 April

1 April to 31 August

the beginning of Autumn term on or after 1 September

1 September to 31 December

the beginning of Spring term on or after 1 January

Is my child eligible?

 

If your child is two you are eligible if you are claiming any one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit with earnings from employment below £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit with earnings from employment are below £16,190
  • Universal Credit - if you and your partner are on a low income from work (this usually means a combined income of less than £15,400 a year after tax)

Why would I want my child to go to nursery?

  • Research shows that good quality childcare from an early age makes a real difference to how well a child does in the future.  
  • It will give your child the chance to make new friends, begin to get ready for school with new activities and improve their language skills.  
  • It will also free up your time for training, hobbies, a break, a part-time job, more hours at work or reduce your childcare bill.

 

To register your interests in a place for September (exact opening date to be confirmed) please complete the attached form on the following page and send it to the school office at officemb@millbrook.vale-academy.org.

Registering your interest is not seen as a commitment or guarantee at this stage by either party. Once we have reviewed the levels of interest, we will contact families individually.
