The government has introduced funding for certain 2 year olds, which could help to reduce your nursery fees. You may be entitled to receive this funding if you claim certain welfare benefits or if your child is (a) adopted; (b) is a child in care or (c) has special needs and has an education health and care plan in place. If you wish to find out more about 2 year funding, please feel free to speak to us. We can provide you with the necessary paperwork for you to make a claim.
All preschool children are entitled to up to 15 hours of free funding per week as part of the Early Years Free Entitlement scheme (EYFE) from the term after their third birthday. We accept this funding (known as the universal funding) with no strings attached – you do not have to sign up for a minimum number of sessions and you can use this funding in term time only or stretched throughout the entire year.
We also accept the new 30 hours additional preschool funding (known as extended funding). This is available to all eligible families (visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk for further details of whether you are eligible). Our additional funding is available throughout the entire the year (not just in term time).
Both types of funding are based on 38 weeks of the year giving eligible families 570 and 1140 hours per year repectively. To keep your payments to a roughly equal fee year round, we 'stretch' this funding over the 51 weeks we are open. This means you will receive around 11 hours or 22 hours every week of the year and don't receive a higher bill outside term time.
The nursery accepts childcare vouchers as part or full settlement of childcare fees. Please speak to a member of staff for further details.
