FAQs for 30 Hours Free Childcare for Foster Children
Members of Northumberland County Council’s Early Years Team got together recently with partners and service users to discuss the 30-hour free childcare pilot and what it means to their role, families and businesses.
The discussion - which focussed on experiences so far, lessons learnt and what the extended entitlement means to their role - was recorded as a podcast, as part of the County Council’s commitment to feedback on progress in order to support others to be ready for the national roll-out of the scheme in 2017.
Taking part in the discussion was:
Eve Sinclair - Early Years Sustainability Officer
Katie Watson - Early Years Adviser
Carol - A Grandmother of a child using 30 hour provision
Emma Potts - Head Teacher of Prudhoe Adderlane First School
Di Richardson - Owner of Diandjims Nursery in Prudhoe and Hexham
