Allison Lee offers advice on claiming free milk; managing a parent who breaches the contract; and suggests some fun activities to learn about the environment
Claiming free milk
All registered childminders can claim for the cost of one-third (189ml) of a pint of milk per day for each pre-school child they look after for two or more hours daily.
You can claim the equivalent of formula milk for babies under 12 months of age.
‘Milk’ means heat-treated (pasteurised) liquid cow’s milk, including whole and semi-skimmed. It does not include flavoured or coloured milk, skimmed, soya, unpasteurised or goats’ milk.
To make a claim, write to the Nursery Milk Reimbursement Unit (NMRU), PO Box 504, Leicester, LE94 0AE. Retain any receipts until after each claim has been paid as proof of purchase.
