PARENTS!  Have you heard about the 30 hours free childcare for 3 & 4 year olds with working parents?

In September 2017 Doncaster Council will introduce the 30 hours of free childcare for the working parents of 3 & 4 year olds.

This survey is aimed at families with a child aged 0 to 5 years old.  We want to understand your views on how the additional 15 hours of free childcare may affect them with regards to:

•      Potential take up of the additional hours

•   Potential change to future working hours

•      Places being delivered more flexibly


The aim is to collect information from all families whether or not they meet the criteria for a free place.  This is because parents may decide to alter their work hours so they do meet the criteria and can then benefit from the additional free childcare hours.


The response from this survey will be used to shape the planning and delivery of the extra childcare to ensure there are sufficient places to meet the potential need for September 2017.

Day 4

Had an amazing penultimate day in Le Touquet! Started off with a relaxing stroll around the market, looking at the beautiful scenery and spending all our money! We treated ourselves to a delicious cake from an authentic French patisserie to eat with our packed lunches by the beach. We had an absolute ball at the Aqualund and the children thoroughly enjoyed the slides. We are all dressed up in our finery and on the way to the restaurant for our evening meal!

Day 3

We have had an interesting visit to the Snail Farm this morning.  This afternoon we are making bread in a local bread factory and will then be getting ready to go bowling this evening.

Day 2

Had a very busy second day in France!  After an early wake up call, we were straight into breakfast and to the Aquarium in Boulogne where we really enjoyed watching the sea lions and penguins.  After a quick lunch, we headed to the sweet factory before carrying on to visit the Etaples Cemetery.  After a delicious pasta dinner, we enjoyed making crepes smothered in chocolate sauce!  We were so excited we had to have a nice stroll to the beach to play ball games before heading back to bed for a good nights sleep.

Day 1

Evening- We had a great first night settling into the hotel with a delicious 3 course dinner and then a trip to the beach to watch the sunset. Not a sound was heard after lights out after a very busy and tiring day!

16:45 - We have just arrived at our hotel and all is well.

13:07- We have arrived in Dover and are just about to board the ferry! Lots of renditions of White Cliffs were heard around the SJS bus!
