30 hours childcare programme

The statutory and operational guidance to support the delivery of the 30 hours extended entitlement programme has been released by the DfE. It is recommended that all providers read these documents.

Eligibility guidance has also been confirmed and we include regular updates and alerts in this section as elements of the programme are confirmed and become operational, in readiness for the national roll out in September 2017.

Business planning/ partnership working guidance

In Ealing, we have run business support workshops and briefings for schools, PVIs and childminders and during that process have developed a range of documents and tools providers can use to assist in developing their business plan for the 30hr extended entitlement.

Developing your business plan will assist in making an informed decision regarding the level of engagement and delivery of the programme.
