In the March 2013 issue we have special advance information about the new start-up grants for childcare businesses which will be available from the end of April. We also take a look at the recent budget announcements about tax-free childcare, and the £2,000 Employment Allowance for businesses. We comment on the recent Childcare Costs Survey, and notify you of two new consultation exercises by the government and Ofsted on issues that will affect out of school clubs. Plus our usual round-up of other news for out of school clubs, plus tips for your Ofsted inspection and a really great craft activity to try with the children at your club.
