We want to make everyone aware of the opportunity for Funded Places at Hame Fae Hame and also the option of All Year Round and Fully Flexible places. We have a series of posts covering this, starting with the latest information on Entitled Two Year Olds and how to apply via the SIC: –
Two Year Olds
To qualify for a two-year-old place you need to evidence that you receive one or more of these benefits:
Income Support (IS)
Job Seeker’s Allowance (income based)
any income related element of Employment and Support Allowance
Incapacity or Severe Disablement Allowance
State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit, but not Working Tax Credit and your income is £16,480 or less
Child tax Credit and Working Tax Credit and your income is £7,500 or less
support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
Universal Credit and your household take-home pay, is £625 a month or less
Or if your child is:
Under a kinship care order
Living with a parent-appointed guardian.
When the statutory duty for expansion comes into force in August 2021, funded early learning and childcare will also be available to 2 year olds who have a care experienced parent.
When you complete the registration form you will be asked to provide evidence of your eligibility.
Once approved, the SIC will provide all eligible two year olds an early learning and childcare place from the day after their second birthday.
As Hame Fae Hame is an approved provider for this funded entitlement, we will be happy to discuss any queries about how we can meet your needs, with options to use the entitled hours on a flexible or all year round basis. We recognise that everyone’s needs are different and we will work with you on what suits your circumstances.
