Curious Goose Nursery is now taking registrations for 2 and 3 year olds to start in September 2020 and January 2021. Please contact us if you wish to register, or change your current hours.
Have you received your Golden Ticket? Funded two year olds are entitled to up to 15-hours free at Nursery. Come and speak to us if you are thinking about starting your child’s learning journey.
We accept 15 and 30 hour government funding with no requirement for parents to purchase additional hours. Government funding can be shared between providers; for example, your child can spend time with a childminder and have funded sessions at nursery. Please speak to Jane about your requirements and check the Childcare pages of the Gov website to check your eligibility.
To enable us to claim up to 15 additional hours of funding for your child, we need you to provide your CHILDCARE REFERENCE NUMBER in the term PRIOR to you using this funding. You can find your reference number at: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk or at www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator.
Do you have a Golden Ticket? Redeem it with us and give your child a headstart in education!
You can use all or part of your two-year-old funding at Curious Goose in order to do what's best to suit you and your child.
Golden Tickets are sent to eligible households by Devon County Council and entitle the holder to 15 hours FREE childcare and education. If you think you may be eligible but haven't received one, check the criteria on the Devon Website, or give them a ring.
Do you have any skills or talents you could share with us? We love to have parents and friends of nursery to come in and talk to the children about what they can do and what they get up to. In the past we have had lambs come to visit, parents talking about their careers and hobbies and parents have even taught us songs in new languages! If you would like to come and share with us what you get up to, we would be very interested to hear about it and it will help to widen the children’s experiences – please speak to Jane.
