Help with Childcare Costs

The UK Government provide help with various childcare, here is some information and resources for parents.

Childcare Calculator

The government have built a calculator that will help you see what government support you are eligible for.

For more information on the Childcare Calculator please click here.

15 Hours Free Childcare (3 to 4-Year-Olds)

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year, but you can choose to take fewer hours over more weeks.

For more information on 15 hours free childcare please click here.

30 Hours Free Childcare

You can get 30 hours of free childcare per week for 38 weeks of the year (during school term time).

You may be able to get free childcare for 52 weeks if you use fewer than 30 hours per week. Check with your childcare provider to find out if this is something they offer.

Tax-Free Childcare

You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for your child(ren) to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).

Childcare Vouchers

Unfortunately, the Government closed the Childcare Vouchers scheme to new entrants on 4th October 2018. This means that if you’re a parent looking to join Childcare Vouchers for the first time, or an employer looking to start a scheme in your business for the first time, that option is no longer available to you.

Tapestry - Online Learning Journel

We use the online learning journal, Tapestry. This allows us to share your child(ren)’s progress while they are in our care, you are also able to share your child(ren)’s progress at home!

To arrange access to Tapestry please send an email to admin@raundsplaygroup.co.uk and we will be happy to help.

Once your account is ready you can access Tapestry via the Tapestry website, the Apple app and the Android app.

Uniform

At Raunds Playgroup we like to prepare the children ready for school, as part of that we have our own uniform! We feel this is also a nice keepsake from your child(ren)’s time with us. Uniform is optional.

All money raised through the sale of our uniform goes into making the Playgroup better for the children.
