Funding for 3 and 4 year olds

From September 2017 funding for early education for 3 and 4 year old children is changing.

The term after your child turns 3 you will be eligible for the universal offer of free early education of up to 15 hours a week term time only.

Some children will be eligible for extended childcare from this date, which is up to 30 hours a week term time only.

Please refer to our funding offer document for more information, eligiblity critera and how to apply.

Meals during these funded sessions are charged separately and prices can be found in our Nursery Fees Document.

Should you wish you extend your child’s care over these hours per day, the cost for the additional sessions can be found in our Nursery Fees Document. Should the extended hours total 5 hours, meals for that session are included as usual.

 

Funding for 2 year olds

Unlike 3 year old funding, children who qualify for 2 year old funding must meet certain criteria set out by the local authority. If you think you could be eligible for the funding please speak to a member of the management team who will be happy to help you further.
