17 Discretionary services DSG might fund 2015/16 Early Years Education Support Support to childminders and group settings to strengthen governance and leadership arrangements Support to setting to meet the welfare standards Specific support to childminders to raise the quality of early years education delivery Resources needed £500k to commission from the local authority or other organisation Offers 6 days per provider assuming 300 providers need support

18 Discretionary services Alternative options: Early Years Education Support Group settings pay for support to strengthen governance and leadership arrangements (approx. £250 per day, most settings require 4-6 days support) Offer places on welfare standards training courses at minimal cost e.g. pay for venue and refreshments where there are spaces School peer mentors (schools cover costs) give specific support to childminders to raise the quality of delivery Childminding support currently requires 2,730 days

23 Could providers pay for support? Average cost of a member of staff is £27,000 Early Years Single Funding Formula (EYSFF) for 3 year olds staffed on a ratio of 1:8 gives £19,744 p.a (based on 2013/14 average EYE hourly rate) Normal ratio of 1:6 which reduces income to £14,808 p.a Providers pay the difference through business model Increase in uptake of hours means that there is less opportunity to charge for additional time Staffing tends to account for 80% of income Resources required Approximately 15 pence on the base rate would be needed for providers to cover total budget through purchasing services All providers would receive uplift rather than those most in need of support

24 Options Early Years discretionary services to be funded using the Early Years Block of DSG Early Years Education providers to buy all discretionary services Schools to provide services directly with some support from the LA funded from the DSG Cease funding for discretionary services
