Thank you for all of your support this term!
Due to your dedication, over 460 families have benefited from 30 hours this term with more families due to benefit next year and 82% of 2 year olds are taking up their entitlement across the County. These are brilliant take up figures!
Unfortunately we are still yet to hear from DfE with regards to if more places will be available for 2017. We are aware that the timing of this poses difficulties for your place planning etc and we will aim to work closely with you if and when more places are allocated. Thank you for your patience.
