Through experience, K8Z Cheeky Monkeyz recognises that not all parents may be aware of the different ways that they might be able to obtain assistance in meeting the costs of their child’s/children’s childcare fees. To provide some assistance to these parents we have put this simple guide together.
Free Childcare and Education for children aged between 3 to 4
All 3 to 4-year-olds in England receive 570 hours of free early education or childcare per year. We stretch the termly entitlement over 51 weeks of the year.
30-hours Free Childcare and Education
Children of parents meeting specific criteria will be eligible for the extended entitlement which provides an additional 570 hours of free childcare per year. This will be stretched over the full year in the same way as the 15 hours.
To check to see if your child id eligibility for the 30 hours, please click here.
Here at K8Z Cheeky Monkeyz, we offer two, three and four year funding, along with accepting voucher’s from Employee Childcare Vouchers and Tax Free childcare vouchers.
When you can start claiming
The date you can start claiming depends on your child’s birthday, please see the guide below:
|Child’s Birthday||When you Can Claim|
|1st January to 31st March||The beginning of term on or after 1st April.|
|1st April to 31st August||The beginning of term on or after 1st September.|
|1st September to 31st December||The beginning of term on or after 1st January.|
Your child was born on 15th June 2015. You can receive free childcare when the next term starts after 1st September 2018.
The free early education and childcare must be with an approved childcare provider.
Eligibility stops at the end of the term before your child is due to start reception class.
It's A New Year:
What the Parents Say
The staff at Cheeky Monkeys are amazing, very friendly and fantastic with the children. As a full time mum it's difficult to leave your child in someone else's care but my daughter loves going in the nursery due to the strong relationship developed with staff. Attending the nursery has developed my daughter both educationally as well as her social development, she now enjoys making new friends and taking part in the many different activities the nursery offers.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to "K8s Cheeky Monkeyz" the staff are very enthusiastic about their children's learning through fun. You can always guarantee the children will have a busy day here with practical learning. The environment is bright, happy and safe, my twins love coming to nursery and any other events held by the manager Katie Forster. The manager and owner Katie is very passionate about inspiring the children to develop into happy, well mannered and positive little beings. Thank you guys for all your support and motivation!
I have no idea how I stumbled across Cheeky Monkeyz but I'm so glad I did. Having tried several 'holiday clubs' which involved nothing more than the kids being in a room all day, and none of which my son enjoyed, Katie's club is absolutely amazing! The WOW factor is definitely the swimming activities and Isaak loves the time he spends with Katie and her staff so much that he would rather go there than for me to take days off work! All the staff know all the children well, their likes and dislikes and what makes them tick. Ideally all parents would love to spend the school holidays with their kids but for most people that's just not possible; this is definitely the next best thing.
