30 Hours Free Childcare (Autumn 2018)


Introduction to 30 Hours Survey

You may have completed this survey in the Autumn 17 or Spring and Summer 2018 term, HOWEVER please give us your views again as they may have changed and we would like to be able to respond to current need and expectation. It has been established that more than half of Barnsley’s 3 and 4 year olds are eligible to access the additional 15 hours of Funded Early Education. We would like to ask for feedback from those who have accessed a place already, those who successfully applied but did not go on to use their code or those who may now be considering applying the term after their child’s 3rd Birthday. We need to know this, so that Barnsley Council is able to plan for future demand. Prior to September 2017 all 3 and 4 year olds were entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week during term time. The additional extended entitlement (the 30 hour offer) is now available to eligible families.
