Meeting the demand for 30 hours childcare at Holy Apostles Playgroup
In September 2017 the government will be rolling out additional help for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds. If you and your husband/partner work a minimum of 16 hours each and earn less than £100,000 each then you may qualify for an additional 15 hours of free child-care giving you a total of 30 hours per week. If you are a single parent then the requirement is just for you to be working the minimum 16 hours per week.
At Holy Apostles’ Pre-school we are extending our playgroup opening hours in September 2017 and will offer 10 sessions per week i.e. a morning and afternoon session each day or the option to stay the whole day from 9am to 3pm. Ideally we would like to run some mixed age playgroup sessions and some exclusively for children in their pre-school year but demand will determine how much flexibility we can have.
Initially we are suggesting that Wednesday and Thursday afternoon sessions will be mixed age group with a suggested minimum age of 3 years old.
