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.
