All non-maintained settings must be named in the Council’s Early Years Plan, and must therefore be registered with the Councils Early Years Service to offer Early Years Education. This service is funded by the Welsh Government.

Settings are to provide a minimum of 10 hours of education provision over 4 - 5 days per week, for 26 weeks a year (Spring and Summer Terms), for no more than one session per day in respect of any one child.

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

The purpose of the Flying Start programme is to support families to give children the best start in life; offer improved child opportunities through high quality registered childcare and universal parenting support programmes, such as, Early Language Development; and improve engagement of families with Flying Start opportunities by offering local services based within Flying Start communities. The Flying Start programme is Welsh Government funded.

The Flying Start childcare provision will be provided for children who live in the Flying Start postcode catchment areas from the term after their second birthday until the term of their third birthday, to enable smooth transition into their rising 3 place in Early Years Education.

Welsh Government Flying Start Guidance states that Childcare is required to run 5 days for 2.5 hours a day for 39 weeks a year (term time) with some Council and setting discretion for flexibility where parents are attending training or working. Settings should be able to offer some flexibility for no more than 2 sessions per day, but this arrangement is exceptional and must be agreed by the Council in advance of the offer being made to the family. Any arrangements made without prior Council approval of placement, will be the responsibility of the setting to finance.

The Funding will be part of the Assisted Places Scheme identified by a multi agency team of professionals including Education Psychology, i.e. ISCAN.
