Making the Right Decision about your Childcare


he first years of a child’s life are the most important influential times and childcare can play a huge part, particularly that all 3 and 4 year old in Staffordshire are entitled to free 15 hours education places. Children as young as 2 really benefit from early education. They learn while they play, improving their social skills and they get used to a routine. Once they are old enough to go to school, they’re already well prepared and often achieve more. If you met the eligible criteria, Think2 and 15 hours of free childcare could be your ticket to improve life, work prospects and relationships. Below is a quick reference guide to hep explain the differences between each type of childcare: CHILDMINDERS Registered Childminders are self-employed carers, who look after your chil along with other children, usually in their own home. As they are self-employed, they can set their own working hours. Ideal if you want your child to be cared for in a family home; flexible care; children of different ages to be cared for together; childcare that offers continuity from birth to teenage years. DAY NURSERIES Provide care and education for children from birth to five years. Opening times tend to coincide with a standard working day, 7.30am-6pm.


Ideal if you want your child in a fixed location with a team of qualified staff; somewhere open virtually all year round; your child to mix with lots of children; to have access to a wide range of toys and stimulus. NURSERY SCHOOLS Nursery Schools provide early education and childcare for children between 3-5 years. Usually 9am-3.30pm for full or half day sessions. Ideal if you want your child to mix with children of similar ages; continuity of care and to have access to a wide range of toys and stimulus. PRE-SCHOOL PLAYGROUP Pre-School Playgroups provide childcare and early education for children from 2-5 years. They offer sessions from 2.5 hours-4 hours during term time, either every day or on specific days of the week. Ideal if you want your pre-school child to mix and learn to socialise; take part in early years education and childcare.; to get involved with the playgroup and help out. For more information: On childcare provisions please contact Family Information Service 0300 111 8007 Free childcare for 2 year olds Early Years Foundation Stage

From September you could qualify for 15 hours free childcare each week for your two year old. / 08456 436 874
