Hi Lisa - Inge is right, several authorities are already pilotting the 15 hour entitlement, it's being rolled out across the coutnry gradually to be everywhere by 2010.

 

I think you're right, I've also heard something about the hours being increased even further in the future but don't remember any more detail than that!

We are in Leicestershire and are already opening 3 hours per day. This became compulsary for us at Easter. I think we in Leicestershire will be doing the 20 hours in 2010!

 

Yes I think you are right Brenda...............4 hours in 2010 here in Leicestershire. We've already had staff threaten to leave!! Not looking forward to it myself!!! :o

Does anybody know when it is that two year olds get their, I think it was 9 hr, entitlement? I thought this was being trialled somewhere in London?

 

I've read so much information recently it is all very hazy and my information might be muddled. Happens all the time?!!

We are open from 9.15 to 12.15pm.

 

Yes funding does go up for the extra hours. You get paid by the hour and receive £3.47 per hour which is £10.41 per morning.

Our current contract with Cheshire LA has been extended to March 09, they are supposed to be writing in Jan 09 to inform us of changes - so my guess (and it is only a guess!) is that Cheshire will start rolling out increase from Sept 09? Who knows?

I did hear a whisper that funding will be hourly, with incremental rates for certain services provided eg how flexible you can be!!, what your Ofsted report is like!!!!! and other little gems like that - but not certain of the credibility of the info - it wouldn't surprise me if there was a sting in the tail somewhere though.
