Proposal Details: I propose to provide a childcare hub for the three Axminster schools, delivering Breakfast and Homework clubs to the three Axminster schools during term time and the EYE offer to eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds in term time. There would also be provision of holiday play schemes for school aged children. Full day care would be available if required from 08:00-18:00 for pre-school children whose parents work and need to buy additional childcare hours. The initiative would be sustained through government funding through the EYE and Childcare Tax Credits together with top-up fees from parents who wish to attend for longer hours.
