Description:

Briefing session which will give attendees an opportunity to raise any questions they have with regards to preparing for introduction of 30hrs FEEE in September 2017

Frequently asked questions:

  • Do I have to offer up to 30hrs free?
  • What are disadvantages/benefits of choosing to offer 30hrs?
  • Do I need to review my admissions policy?
  • What models of delivery can I operate?
  • How long or short can sessions be?
  • How much will I be paid for the FEEE hours that I provide?
  • How do I ensure that I meet my statutory duty to ensure that invoices and receipts are clear, transparent and itemised allowing parents to see that they have received their child’s free entitlement completely free of charge and understand fees paid for additional hours or services?

There are several of these information sessions in total from May to July - you only need to book onto one of these.

Attendees who did not attend the Early Years Business Conference on 21 February 2017 at Gilwell Park are advised to review the resources from this event on The Hub in advance of attending (you will need to be logged on to access all of the documentation): https://thehub.walthamforest.gov.uk/news/find-out-about-new-30-hours-free-childcare-entitlement
