For attention of all Montessori Leaders. The consultation explained in the above document refers to the grant funding for all three and four year olds, in a wide variety of settings, to be implemented from April 2017.   As it will affect the majority of Montessori settings, it is important that Montessori managers and proprietors become familiar with the document, aptly explained by Dr. Martin Bradley (MSA Chair) on pages 1-8 of the attachment.

The MSA response to the consultation is included on pages 8-13 and will be submitted to the DfE following meeting of the MSA Advisory Council on 17 September.   The response could be used as a pro-forma for your own or your schools reply.

The MSN urges you to take advantage of the opportunity to put forward your views.   The closing date for the consultation is 22 September.  The link to the consultation is  https://consult.education.gov.uk/early-years-funding/eynff
