30 Hours Partner Details (These are details of any other childcare provider(s) that this provider will work with to offer the 30 hours entitlement)

Government funding for Early Years Free Entitlement, and Free For Two (only if you meet eligibility criteria) means your child is entitled to 15 hours free childcare per week, which applies the term after the child is 3 years old (For Early Years Free Entitlement) This funding can be shared between two settings, funding is applied and claimed for by the pre-school.You will receive notice prior to your child reaching the start of their free entitlement. At which time we require to see your child's birth certificate. Without this evidence of your child's eligibility the pre-school will be unable to claim on your behalf. This is based on 15 hours per week, based on a minimum of 38 weeks per year. Where funding is not received, or additional hours are attended, then the normal pre-school fees apply.Families in receipt of the 30 hours funding can claim up to a maximum of 25 hours at Scribbles (Due to restrictions on opening hours) We work closely with a variety of other pre-schools and childminders to allow parents to claim the 30 hours between two registered providers.

Special Needs Support

As part of the setting's policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any special needs a child may have. The setting works to the requirements of the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2014).

This includes having a designated Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, this is Jessica Green.  The SENCO is responsible for ensuring that every child is developing and will liaise with parents, other professionals and outside agencies.  This is to ensure that the child is able to reach their full potential.  All information is treated in the strictest confidence and our confidentiality policy is adhered to at all times.
