Giving you peace of mind

Our registration with OFSTED provides you with the assurance that:

  • We have met basic standards designed to safeguard children
  • Our premises, equipment and care provision is safe and suitable
  • Local authorities offer us support and can pass on our details to those seeking childcare
  • All staff with unsupervised access to children have undergone a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
  • At least one staff member has had comprehensive Paediatric First Aid training

Funding our support services

Here at The New Ways Learning Centre, we appreciate that parents want their children to be able to benefit from the services that we offer. However, we also appreciate that finding the money to fund this can be difficult, particularly in the current economic climate.

As an OFSTED registered provider, we can accept tax-free childcare payments and childcare vouchers which allows you to make savings on our fees. The tax-free childcare payment scheme is operated by the GOVERMENT and there are a wide range of childcare voucher schemes currently running operated by a variety of different providers. You can also CONTACT The New Ways Learning Centre to find out more about how to pay using these services.

If you do not use childcare vouchers or the tax-free childcare payment scheme, you may be eligible for help with fees under the Childcare Element of Working Tax Credit arrangements. You can find out more about this HERE. All reimbursements of our fees through this route must be sought from the government only and not through The New Ways Learning Centre.
