Childcare Business Grants to double from April

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has announced that new childcare companies in England will benefit from doubled Childcare Business Grants from April 2015. Grants for nurseries, out-of-school clubs and childcare for disabled children will rise from £500 to £1,000, while grants for childminders will rise from £250 to £500. The grant scheme will also be extended to encompass existing childcare companies which have been trading for less than one year. Previously, only start ups which planned to begin trading within six months were eligible. This announcement follows criticism from sector representatives about the grants providing too little funding to encourage new start ups.
