Thank you to our families for joining us on our Easter Egg Hunt. We walked together through the village assembling at the local recreation ground. Despite the chill, we had lots of fun collecting plastic eggs to fill a giant nest. Lots of energy was expended, including by the staff, who had to keep redistributing the eggs! We exchanged our plastic eggs for a chocolate one (kindly donated by Tesco) on our return to Pre-School.
From September 2017 some children will be able to receive 30 hours free childcare per week. To be eligible to claim this you, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £120 a week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) and earn less than £100,000 per year.
If you think you are eligible then you can check and apply via this link https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/childcare-and-advice-for-parents/free-early-education-and-childcare/free-early-education-and-childcare.aspx
If you are successful you will be given a code which you need to give to us which we can then use to claim your hours on your behalf.
Currently we are able to offer your child 21.5 hours a week. You may therefore wish to claim your additional entitlement through a second setting or child care provider, including registered childminders.
