  1. Yaaaay For the little people

    Received confirmation from the DofE that :
    that the local authority will no longer be placing additional conditions on childminders judged ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ in order for them to receive funding to deliver early education places.

    Is this a definite win for the little person? Well, I hope so, provided of course the council don't sneak something else in due to my lack of knowledge lol

    Would like to thank ...

  2. DofE have now contacted the LA

    Finally, the DofE have raised the issue directly with the council and has asked them to clarify their position on funding ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ childminders who wish to deliver funded early education places.

  5. Finally a response from the LA - well, sort of..... :-/

    Having sorted out an email to my LA, informing them of the DofE's response, I pointed out that there appears to be some confusion on behalf of the LA and asked for their response.
    I received an automated message that there was no one available till the middle of the month, so I waited....
