Playworks Early Days Nursery works in conjunction with Caerphilly Early Years Department to provide Assisted and Supported Places, the 30 Hour Free Childcare Offer for Wales and Flying Start Scheme.
Every child has the right to flourish and develop to their full potential. Caerphilly Early Years has developed a new Assisted Places Scheme for children with emerging needs. The purpose of the scheme is to provides funding through the Families First Grant for pre-school children with additional needs and disabilities to help access community based play settings, in particular the play and learning environments, where the parent would be unable to fund the sessions themselves.
This time-limited support is only available for pre-school children living in non-Flying Start areas. Children identified with emerging needs, developmental delays or identified disabilities will be considered by the scheme.
The Supported Places Scheme provides funding through Families First Grant for pre-school children with additional needs, disabilities and emerging needs. This allows them to access a community based play setting, in particular the play and learning environment, where it has been identified that they would be unable to do this without additional support.
This time limited additional support is available for pre-school children living in non-Flying Start areas. Children identified with emerging needs, developmental delays or identified disabilities will be considered by the scheme.
