Work-life-balance. An overused, meaningless catchall?

Guest Blog From Emma Fulton Coaching
A recent client began our sessions together with the goal of better work life balance (or WLB). As we talked, an interesting thing happened. Turned out she wasn’t that interested in balance after all. What she actually wanted was meaningful work that she felt very motivated by. Work she enjoyed so much she was happy to put the kids in childcare to do it.     

30 Hours Childcare

In September 2017 the 30 hours “free” childcare for working parents is being introduced.  There is a lot of confusion around 30 hours – we are exploring the topic below. 
What is the 30-hour offer? Can I get free childcare for my children? ELIGIBILITY You will be eligible for the 30-hour funded childcare offer if:
  • You earn more than the equivalent of 16 hours at the national living wage or minimum wage per week: for example, £120 per week if you are 25 or older. .     

Tax Free Childcare

Tax-free childcare is a government scheme that allows all eligible parents of children under 12 – or 17, if your child has a disability – to open an online account to pay for childcare. For every 80p you pay in the government will pay in an extra 20p. All registered childcare providers - including our Greenwich nursery are able to accept payments via the scheme.

Focus on Sport's ABC

A recent study by the University of Loughborough revealed that an increased use in ipads and screens led to a decrease in child  mobility that can subsequently impact learning. Tests to assess Foundation Stage children’s physical development at the start of the first school year found almost a third to be “of concern” for lack of motor skills and reflexes.
