Child Holidays+

Children are allocated 2 weeks holiday per year, after 3 months from starting.   And an addition 2 weeks is available to take during the Christmas break.  Holiday allocation must be taken in week blocks and can be used for sickness and/or holidays.  Parents have to provide a written request to receive the allocation,  Holidays cannot be paid out or used in lieu of payment,  If your child is away over and above the allocation the full fee will be charged to hold their place at the centre,  The allocation runs from 1 January to 31 December of the same year,  Unused weeks are not able to be carried over to the following year.

Christmas Closure+

The centre is open 52 week of the year. Parents are able to take a 2 week holiday at Christmas (Monday 28th December 2020 to Friday, 1st January 2021 and Monday 4th January to Friday 8th January) if their child does not attend.  Families will be advised on a yearly basis to confirm holiday dates.  

20 Hours ECE+

Natural Steps has opted into the "20 hours" scheme - ensuring that all our parents of 3 and 4 year olds will be receiving a saving on their weekly fees. Funding rates for "20 hours" have been calculated to cover the bare minimum regulated standard of education and care. However at Natural Steps we provide well above the minimum funded standards through the provision of our outstanding early childhood education.

Unfortunately this does mean that our current operating costs for "20 hours" are not fully covered by government funding. In order for us to opt into the scheme, all 3 and 4 year olds must be enrolled for a minimum of 2 full days per week. We do not offer half/ part days or sessional education care for these children. As we cannot charge parents for the 20 hours (maximum of 6 hours per day), we have had to build in a chargeable portion of each day.

We understand that this can be confusing so if you have any further queries regarding the "20 hours" Government policy, please see us at the Centre.
