Times and Prices

Working closely and building strong, supportive relationships with our parents/carers from the start is our priority and key to the successful learning, development and early years’ experience our children will have at Launchpad.  Working closely together helps to create a shared level of expectation and when children see their parents happy, they know it is a place they can have fun and feel safe and secure.

There are many reasons why partnerships with our parents are so important and although the responsibility of care and education at preschool falls to the key person for successful development, we know and respect that parents/carers know their children best and believe that working closely together can build close connections between home and school finding common threads that bind our communities together.

At Launchpad, we have a genuine desire and commitment to work in close collaboration with our parents/carers, to enable our children to thrive and grow and to give them the best possible start and opportunities to gain the most out of their early education.

Help with childcare costs:

All three- and four-year-olds are entitled to free, part time early education through Hampshire County Council’s Early Years Education (EYE) funding. This equates to 570 hours for a child’s eligible birth year. Launchpad Preschool provides for this with the standard offer of 15 hours free childcare; however, it is possible to claim for the ‘stretched offer’ if you attend another setting.

Standard Offer – this applies to children who attend preschool on a term time only basis and equates to 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year.

Stretched Offer – this applies to children who attend preschool and also another setting all year round and equates to 11 hours per week, up to a total of 570 hours per year. 

In both instances, a child becomes eligible for EYE funding at the beginning of the term AFTER their third birthday. We deal with the application process for you and will give you a form to sign each time an application is made.  Further details can be found by clicking the link below, which will take you to Hampshire County Council’s website. 

EYE Funding (HCC) 

Some 3- and 4-year-olds may be eligible for the extended EYE funding, which allows children to receive 30 hours a week funding over 38 weeks, (or 22 hours a week if stretched all year round.) Certain criteria apply, including how many hours you work and your income.  To check if you are eligible for this, please click the button below to be taken to the Childcare Choices website, where you will be guided through the eligibility and application process. 

If you qualify, you will be given a code which you need to give to us, along with your National Insurance number.  You will need to reconfirm your eligibility on the Childcare Choices website every month to continue receiving the extended offer. 

Please note, your code can only be applied the term AFTER you receive it, and cannot be applied mid-term, so please make sure you apply in good time and get the code to us before the end of term to use it during the next term.  We are always on hand to help if you need us.

30 hours funding 

Some 2-year-olds are also eligible for EYE funding. Please click the button below to be taken to Hampshire County Council’s website for more information and to see if you might be eligible. You can either apply through the HCC weblink below or come in to see us and we can help you with your application.

2 year old funding 

Please note, for every hour your child attends preschool and it is not covered by the EYE funding, our hourly charge is £6.00.

In addition to this, some 3- & 4-year-olds whose families are in receipt of certain benefits may be eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium. Please click the button below to be taken to Hampshire County Council’s website for more information. If you believe you may be eligible for EYPP, please fill in the appropriate section of the EYE funding application form which we will provide you with.

Early Years Pupil Premium | Children and Families | Hampshire County Council (hants.gov.uk)

The government has recently introduced a new scheme whereby working parents with children under 12 (or under 17 if disabled) can open a TFC account where for every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2.  To check if you might benefit from this, please click the button below, which will take you to the Childcare Choices website.

Tax Free Childcare 

If you are experiencing any problems with childcare costs or finding out if you are eligible for funding or vouchers, please come and speak to the Manager so that we can work together to find a solution that works for everyone.
