As we are a member of the Leeds Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership we can apply for grants for 3 and 4 year olds. This means that from the term after a child is 3 they are able to have 5 free sessions a week; a session being a morning or afternoon. A full day, 9am - 3pm, counts for 2 sessions. We apply for all our 3 and 4 year olds on a termly basis. If your child attends more than 5 sessions a week, you will be billed for the additional sessions accordingly. Families who qualify for the 30 hours childcare will be able to access this from September 2017.
We are also able to apply for the 2 year old grant for families who are eligible to receive it.
Our Inclusion policy is as follows: Thorner Pre-school believes that all young children belong in a setting that they would otherwise attend if they did not have a disability or delay. We are a fully accessible setting. Thorner Pre-school is committed to participating in the community and facilitating relationships with other agencies and programs that provide support and services for young children and their families.
