Please discuss your funding options with Kayleigh, Rachel or Nicky.

Funding

Children are entitled to receive 15 free funded hours per week OR 30 free funded hours per week (if eligible, see childcarechoices.gov.uk for more information) from the term following their 3rd birthday. Some eligible 2 year olds are also entitled to 15 free funded hours from the term following their 2nd birthday.

 

From September 2019 we charge £5.70 per hour for under 3’s and £5 per hour for 3 year olds.

N.B: Two year old funding and the 30 hours offer are not universal offers, your family will need to meet eligibility criteria in order for you to access this offer. You are able to share funding between any number of early years setting should you wish to. This funding is paid directly to the Pre-school on completion of a parent declaration form.
