Michael was delighted to attend the open morning at the new BizzyBeez childcare facility in Dorset today. Situated just outside Poole, and offering childcare for children aged 6 months to 4 years, Bizzybeez is a new business run by a local family from Upton.
Kate and James invited Michael to see the lovely new facilities, with light and spacious rooms, including a dedicated baby room. They are now open, and have spaces for both babies and toddlers.
It was lovely to be able to visit Bizzybeez this morning. Good quality childcare is so important for local families, and it's great that there is another high quality option in such a convenient location.
The government is committed to ensuring that families are supported with childcare, and there is an updated eligibility checker for parents to see what childcare support they're entitled to. Parents can also sign up to get alerts when they need to register for new entitlements: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
Parents on Universal Credit can also claim more per month for childcare, so that families can chose high quality childcare for their children. This could be as much as 85% back for childcare costs, giving £950.92 for one child and £1,630.15 for 2 or more children.
