Free Childcare Entitlement
A government grant pays for 570 hours/year of pre-school education for all 3-4 year olds and some 2 year olds.

An expanded entitlement to 30 hours/week is also offered but not universally. Eligibility can be checked at: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk..

The 570 hours funding is provided flexibly and transparently. Our fee structure and invoicing pointedly avoid any opaqueness in how the funded hours are given to you.

Our 4 term nursery academic year runs continuously from Sept to end of July. As we offer different sessions with fixed times, the funded hours are stretched and adapted to align with this. This means fewer funded hours per week for some terms to ensure all weeks are funded.

For example, if funding is allocated to the morning session, then the funding is deployed as follows:

  • 15 hours/week or 3 sessions offered in Autumn term
  • 10 hours/week or two sessions offered in Winter term
  • 10 hours/week or two sessions offered in Spring term
  • 15 hours/week or 3 sessions offered in Summer term

The Manager or Accounts will advise on other options to allocate the funding.

Childcare Vouchers: Working parents can redirect part of their salary before it is taxed to pay for childcare fees in the form of vouchers.

Tax-Free Childcare: You can also open up an online savings account, called Tax-free Childcare, which gives a top-up of 20% to a defined limit.

For guidance on both schemes, refer to http://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.

The following fee table will take effect from Feb 15th (start of our Spring term).
