To claim free early years education for your child, we need to have seen their birth certificate and have a completed parental declaration form. We issue these forms for completion at the beginning of terms 1, 3 and 5, they must be completed and returned by the due date. If not, then we cannot claim the free early years education for your child and we would therefore require payment from you. It is a requirement for funded children that a holiday form is completed if you need to take your child on holiday during term time. 

 

Where free early years education does not apply, you will be issued with an invoice for the term.  Payment is by BACS transfer (details are on the invoice) or you can set up a tax free childcare account to pay the invoice. This is a government initiative to help working families with childcare costs. Please click HERE for more information on help paying for your childcare.

If you have any difficulty paying any bill, please contact our treasurer in absolute confidence (trustees@staplepreschool.co.uk).  

We can claim Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) and receive extra funding to help support your child's individual learning if you are on certain benefits or they have been in care. Please click HERE for more info. You can complete the form online yourself HERE  (you will need our DfE URN number: 513468) or you can complete the early years pupil premium part of the parental declaration form. Staff will be happy to help you with this. 

If your child receives disability living allowance (DLA), then we can apply for additional disability access funding to help ensure all their needs are met and they reach their full potential whilst at our preschool. In addition, every local authority must have a special educational needs inclusion fund (SENIF) to support early years education providers to meet the needs of individual children with SEN. Our SENCO's are happy to discuss both these types of additional funding with parents.
