star this property answer text <p>As promised, in September 2016, the Government launched 30 hours free childcare through eight Early Implementers one year in advance of full implementation of the offer from September 2017. Up to 5,000 working families will benefit in our eight Early Implementers areas. The Early Implementers are testing the delivery of the 30 hours free childcare offer, and providing valuable learning by developing a number of approaches. This includes supporting the needs of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, and developing flexible models to meet the needs of working parents.</p><p> </p><p>In York, where there are no limits on the number of families who can benefit, around 83% of eligible families are already receiving 30 hours free childcare, just 6 weeks after the launch ‎of early implementation.</p><p> </p><p>The department has commissioned an independent evaluation of early implementation of the 30 hours free childcare offer. The evaluation is focusing on generating learning that can be used by Early Implementers and all local authorities ahead of national rollout in September 2017. There will be a national findings event in the spring next year, and a formal evaluation report will be published in July 2017.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is the responsibility of local authorities to ensure that providers deliver government-funded early education places free of charge, and that parents are not required to pay for additional services or consumables as a condition of accessing a place. The Government does not require local authorities to report breaches of this requirement centrally; however it has clearly set out local authorities’ responsibility for ensuring there are no compulsory charges for parents.</p><p> </p><p>The 2014 Statutory Guidance states that, in relation to delivery of the early education entitlements for two-, three- and four-year-olds, local authorities should ensure that if providers charge for any goods or services, this is not a condition of children accessing their place. The Statutory Guidance is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/298754/2014_Draft_Statutory_Guidance.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/298754/2014_Draft_Statutory_Guidance.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>We reinforced this position in the consultation on reforms to Early Years Funding which was published on 11 August. This makes clear that providers are free to charge parents for consumables (such as drinks, meals and nappies) or additional services (such as baby yoga, music lessons and trips) provided they are not compulsory. ‘So, for example, paying for additional services must not be a condition of taking up a free publicly-funded place’. The consultation document is available at: <a href="https://consult.education.gov.uk/early-years-funding/eynff" target="_blank">https://consult.education.gov.uk/early-years-funding/eynff</a></p><p> </p><p>We will publish updated Statutory Guidance in early 2017, which will restate the Government position on providers charging for additional services or consumables. We have consulted on draft updated Statutory Guidance which is available at: <a href="https://consult.education.gov.uk/early-years-funding/childcare-free-entitlement/supporting_documents/STAT%20GUIDANCE%20latest.pdf" target="_blank">https://consult.education.gov.uk/early-years-funding/childcare-free-entitlement/supporting_documents/STAT%20GUIDANCE%20latest.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is already clear in statutory guidance that local authorities should have a complaints procedure for parents who are not satisfied that their child has received their early education place, or are unhappy with any aspect of the way in which they have received it, and should publicise this to parents. This is set out at C.7 in Statutory Guidance, which is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/351592/early_education_and_childcare_statutory_guidance_2014.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/351592/early_education_and_childcare_statutory_guidance_2014.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The Department will also include this in the model agreement and the parental declaration template, annexed to the model agreement, which will be published later in the year. The new model agreement and parental declaration template will set out the Department’s expectations on what should be included in agreements between local authorities and childcare providers for delivery of the free early education entitlements for two-, three- and four-year-olds, in order to bring more consistent practice across different local authorities.</p>
