For parents

We invite you to apply for free early education entitlement at our Nursery.

We offer free funded hours from the Government. Some two-year-olds will be entitled to access these. Please check http://familyinformation.leeds.gov.uk/families/Pages/2-year-old-Free-Early-Education-Entitlement-.aspx  to see if you are eligible.
 If you are eligible your child will be entitled to the equivalent of 15 free hours per week. These are term time only. However we believe that our children settle quickly if there are no breaks in their time at Nursery, so we offer these hours all year round, (including school holidays). This means that if you are eligible, then your child will access 11 hours a week with us.
All three-year-old children are entitled to the equivalent of 15 hours free education per week. As above we do this all year round instead of term time only, so your child can access 11 hours a week with us.
If all parents/carers in the household are working over 16 hours a week, at national minimum wage level, then you could be entitled to an extra 15 free hours a week. You can check your eligibility here. https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds
This is how you could use your free hours:

  • Two half-days, each 5 hours long, either in the morning
    (i.e. from 08:00 — 13:00), or in the afternoon (i.e. from 13:00 — 18:00);
  • One full day from 08:00 — 18:00,

All of the children are equally important to us, so you can rest assured that each child that is in care either paid for personally or by the state, will receive the same food rations, will be included into all of the same activities, and will be taken care of in the same way as any other child in the Nursery.

Tax Credit

Parents are also provided with the opportunity to visit Domi Domingo for free consultations regarding state financial benefits for paid child care programmes.

We have noticed that many parents are unaware of such financial aid and often presume that private kindergartens are simply expensive. For this reason, we wish to be available to everyone and to provide all of the necessary information. For instance, the Government can provide a tax credit to the amount of £122.50 per week for the care of one child, or of £210 per week for the care of two or more children by a childcare provider that is registered at Ofsted. The amount of money that you would be able to receive depends on your and your partner’s annual income and on the amount that you pay to the childcare provider.

If you wish to find out what state financial benefits you are eligible for, consult the tax credits calculator found by clicking here or you can contact us and we will gladly help you

Tax Free Childcare

For every £8 a parent pays into their childcare account, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can get up to £2000 government support per child per year towards their childcare costs – that’s up to £500 every 3 months. If they have a disabled child, they can receive up to £4000 per child – a total of £1000 every 3 months. They can then use this money to pay their childcare provider.

Childcare Vouchers

Another way of financing childcare is by means of childcare vouchers, which are issued prior to income tax payments. The vouchers can be acquired at your workplace, but only if it is registered as a part of the childcare voucher system.
