All Early Years settings offering Free Early Learning must be registered with and inspected by Ofsted.
In our last inspection, the centre was awarded an Outstanding rating. To see what the inspector had to say, please access our latest and past Ofsted reports here.
Sheffield's Network of Family Hubs.
We are pleased to have now been recognised as part of Sheffield's Network of Family Hubs!
We are a Transcultural Family Hub, here to support the families and the community in our local area, keeping culture at the heart of everything that we do.
Not only are we running an Ofsted Outstanding Early Years and nursery provision for children aged 0-5 years, we are home to Emosi, our Transcultural Therapeutic Centre where children can access Art and Music Therapy to support their emotional and behavioural needs. We continue to host many different groups and events to support our families and the wider community, and we look forward to sharing more of what we have planned soon! Please reach out to us if you have any questions about our services and we will be happy to help.
From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders and other childcare providers have been able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care.
We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the Early Years education that we provide for your child. This could include, for example, additional training for our staff on early language, resources to support home learning, investing in a partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise, or supporting our staff in working on specialised areas such as Speech and Language.
The money is paid directly to the provider by the Local Authority. In order to check your eligibility all we need is your National Insurance number, address, date of birth and full name, which are provided when you register a child at the centre.
Criteria is similar to that of Free-School Meal Entitlement. Families may be eligible if they are receiving any of the following:
Income-Based Jobseekers Allowance
Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance
Support from NASS (National Asylum Support Service) under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
Working Tax Credit run-on
It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child performs at both Primary and Secondary school and so we want to make the most of this additional funding. This could make a real difference to your child’s learning and development, particularly as budgets are stretched tighter and tighter.
