As you may be aware already with campaigns like 'Champagne Nurseries, Lemonade Funding' being hot in the media at the moment that the hourly funding received from the government doesn't cover the basic costs for most providers to remain sustainable and maintain high quality standards consistently.
At Next Generation we use the allocated monies, which are calculated for 38 weeks per year, stretched across 50 weeks per year and charge a consumable fee monthly for items/products that are not covered by the funding. The remaining 13 weeks sessions. not covered by funding received from the *LA is detailed on your monthly invoice, we pro- rata all fees equally throughout the year to create one monthly standing order charge.
*LA Funding received does not cover additional costs such as; meals, drinks, nappies, outings, additional activities (Spanish/Football/Phonics Allstars, Dance etc), additional administration tasks, children's' learning journey and so on. The supplements help to meet the gap in funding without compromising our standards.
