children who turn 3 between January and March receive their free place at the start of the summer term. They are entitled to 10 hrs per week throughout the school year which needs to be evenly distributed. The government funds this for all children between the ages of 3 and 4 before joining school at the age of 5. If any extra hrs are needed the parent/carer must pay for this. Even though this education is readily available for all children it is not compulsory to send your child until they reach the age of 5.
These types of provider are usually run by voluntary groups Childminders – normally providing care within the childminders own home from ages 0 – 8 years old. There are limits on the amount of children that childminders can care for at any one time. The limit is up to six children under eight years old, and no more than three of them can be aged under five. Sure Start Children's Centres – providing many free services to parents, guardians, carers and children for 0 – 5. Early years education for children, full and short term day care, family support, health support and parenting advice.
1. Summarize entitlement and provision for early years education. According to Burnham, Louise and Brenda Baker (2011): ‘’ As part of the Every Child Matters agenda and the Childcare Act 2006, it became an entitlement of all 3-and 4-year-olds in England to receive a free part-tie early years education of up to 12.5 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year. The government funds local authorities to ensure that every child receives up to two years of free education before reaching school age. Parents do not need to contribute to this, but will be charged fees for any additional hours the child receives.’’ So early years in school support very young children, it is a distinction in the UK that children can learn through play rather than more formal education.
However, prices usually start from no charge up to £3 an hour. This childcare facility is open to any type of family and is usually run in supermarkets, work places, colleges etc... Parent and Toddler Groups Parent and toddler groups are a great place to meet mums with children your child’s age, and your child can make new friends too. They will be entertained and stimulated by a whole variety of toys, and many groups have craft or sing-a-long activities they can join in with. Most of these groups only run once a week and are usually free of charge or open to a voluntary contribution. Parents and local voluntary groups run these groups in local community facilities and are open to children from six weeks old up to three years
The Childrens Act 2004 set out a national framework for looking after childrens services, at the same time they brought in the Every Child Matters framework which has five main outcomes and they are be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and achive economic well-being, this has had a huge impact on provisions for children and young people nationally. With Every Child Matters and community cohesion (bonding of the school and the local community) schools have been developing their role to become central to the community with projects like the extended schools programme with things like after school clubs, breakfast clubs, adult education and mums and tots groups. Q6c) Explain the roles of other organisations working with children and young people and how these may impact on the work of
