Wrap around Nursery and 30 hours childcare provision

Wrap around nursery (Mini Greyhounds)

 

Our wrap-around nursery service Mini Greyhounds offers parents with greater flexibility. Based in the Rainbow Room with its own outdoor space, the wrap-around service work closely with Greswold's Nursery staff to ensure a joined-up provision.

 

Mini Greyhounds offers planned experiences for the children based on the seven areas of learning in the Foundation Key Stage. The staff also try to follow the children's interests to enage them with their learning. The environment is arranged to cover a wide range of activities, using a variety of equipment to provide your child with opportunities to develop competencies, skills and concepts across all areas of learning. Children are active learners and we believe that learning through play is fun and having fun is conducive to successful learning!

30 hours provision

 

From September 2018 we are pleased to announce we will be offering ’30 hours’. If your child has a place in our school's Nursery they are offered a morning or afternoon session. This means that you will receive your 15 hours which every family is entitled to.

 

If you are then entitled to 30 hours’ you can then take the further 15 hours with us at Greswold Greyhounds. We have come up with 3 different options enabling you to choose whether you take these hours over 3, 4 or 5 days to suit your childcare needs. Anything extra on top you can just book and pay for. Please contact us for further details and to discuss your childcare requirements.

 

How do I know if I am eligible for 30 hours of free childcare?

 

You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are:

 

  • in work - or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave
  • each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wage for 16 hours a week - this is £125.28 if you’re over 25

 

This earnings limit does not apply if you’re self-employed and started your business less than 12 months ago.

 

You’re not eligible if:

 

  • your child does not usually live with you
  • the child is your foster child
  • either you or your partner has a taxable income over £100,000
  • you’re from outside the EEA and your UK residence card says you cannot access public funds

 

For more details about eligibility or to apply for 30 hours of free childcare, visit the government's Childcare Choices website.

 

It is your responsibility to come to us with your ‘code’ in order for us to claim the additional hours. If you are unsure about 30 hours and if you may be entitled then please contact us.

Rising 3s

 

For the first time at Greswold Greyhounds we are offering childcare for children the term after their third birthday within Greswold Greyhounds. This will enable parents to claim their 15 hours with us and pay for any additional childcare on top. We have had a lot of interest in this as parents are keen for their children to settle here and then join our school nursery in the following September. Please contact us to book your child’s place.
