If you are not already aware, Government funding is available for children attending childcare. Your child becomes eligible for funding in the traditional school term after they are 3.

In order to claim this funding you need to complete a Parent declaration form at the start of the Autumn Term (Term 1), Spring Term (Term 3) and Summer Term (Term 5). These forms can be found in the drawer unit on the bookcase in the Playgroup Lobby. Deadlines for returning the forms are usually within the first two weeks of the term. Please keep an eye out for reminders on the notice board. Forms to be returned to the post-box in the Playgroup lobby.

Eligible children are now entitled to 15 hours funding a week, within these 15 hours you can now claim funding for your child to attend Playgroup for the additional hour on Monday, Thursday or Friday to have their lunch with their friends and Playgroup staff (please supply a healthy lunch for your child). The funding is per child, not per childcare provider. On each form you need to enter the number of hours for each day you wish to claim funding for your child’s attendance at Playgroup for the entire traditional term, as well as any funding hours claimed at any other childcare setting. (Please only specify funded hours and not hours you pay for). All Playgroup sessions are subject to availability.

If you choose to use you’re funding in another childcare setting or send your child to Playgroup for longer than 15 hours per week you will incur a charge at an hourly rate. Invoices are issued within the first week of each term and payment is due within 14 days of the invoice date. Late payment will be dealt with using the process outlined in the Playgroup’s Fee Payment Policy, which every parent will have signed.

If you have to reduce sessions during the term, please be aware Playgroup would have to be funded for your child Swindon Borough Council, so please let us know at the soonest opportunity.

Please contact the Funding Officer if you have any funding questions.
