Happy Days Nurseries and Pre-Schools understands that the cost of childcare can represent a significant portion of parents outgoings and therefore wants to ensure all families are receiving the support they are entitled to.

With the financial support available expanding in England, Happy Days are embarking on an Affordable Childcare Information Campaign, to ensure all parents are aware of the various government programs that exist to support with the cost of childcare.

Through their social media channels, website and emails to parents, Happy Days are highlighting all the support available as well as when and how to access it.

Alongside this, all of its 24 settings are holding Affordability Information Events for parents in the local community to access, with colleagues on hand to answer any questions.

Fiona Blackwell, Operations Director, stated, “With the government childcare support expanding, we appreciate that parents may feel overwhelmed with what support is available to them. We are therefore commencing an Affordability Campaign to highlight to parents exactly what that are able to access. We appreciate that everyone’s circumstances are different, so we are explaining all the funding options available in order for them to understand what they can check they are eligible for.”

For families that are new to accessing funded childcare, Happy Days encourages parents to visit their website, Click here, which not only explains the options available but also includes a downloadable ‘Help with the Cost of Childcare’ brochure as well as links to government websites where parents can check their eligibility.

With demand for childcare places increasing, particularly for under 3’s, Happy Days are encouraging parents to apply for a place today to prevent disappointment. click here to find your local nursery and book a tour.
