30 Hours Funded Childcare for 3 and 4 Year Olds
From January 2019 we will be a registered provider for the Welsh Government provision of 30 hours funded childcare for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds.
Parents can receive up to a combined total of 30 hours of early education and childcare, with the current 10 hours a week available to all parents forming part of the offer. We offer a funded childcare package for those wishing to access funding detailed below.
Parents need to book a full day of 8:30 – 4:30 that will be charged as follows.
8:30 – 9:00 £3.75 (payable by parents)
9:00 – 11:00 2 hrs @ £3.50 = £7:00 (early education funding)
11:00 – 3:30 4.5 @ £4.50 = £20.25 (childcare funding)
3:30 – 4:30 £7.50 (payable by parents)
Lunch and 2 snacks = £3.50
Total for the day = £42 – £27.25 of funding
Parent pays £14.75 a day
This package applies for up to 4 days a week. For those requiring five days a week or longer hours, please enquire with the office.
Who can apply?
Families where both parents work with each parent earning the equivalent of 16 hours a week at minimum wage (£125.28 per week) and less than £100,000 per annum can apply. Single parents can also apply on a single wage if they are the main carer.
How do I apply?
Once you have visited the nursery and provisionally reserved your place, you apply through Newport County Council, who are running the scheme on behalf of Monmouthshire, and choose Monmouth Montessori Nursery when prompted to enter a provider. Online applications open on 12th November and the application takes 2-3 weeks to approve.
