Information about funding to support the inclusion of disabled children or those with special needs to attend Ofsted registered childcare and activities.
Childcare inclusion funding is available to support disabled children or those with special needs to attend Ofsted registered childcare and childcare run by schools. The fund is intended to provide for changes to the childcare provision which will make it possible for the child to access the service. This might include:
- changes to the building
- specialist equipment
- training for staff
- more staff time or a member of staff
Parents must pay the fee for attending the childcare.
