Funding and Childcare Vouchers:

The nursery accepts childcare vouchers and offers Government grant places for 3-4 year olds and some funding for 2 year old children. In the term after your child is 3 years old, they will become eligible for a free childcare grant of up to 5 free 3 hour sessions per week. This is applied for 38 weeks of the year. Normal weekly fees will be payable outside of the core 38 week period. Any additional nursery hours that are required to complete a morning or afternoon session will be charged at an hourly rate, plus a food charge. The nursery manager can discuss with you if your child is eligible and how you can claim and the dates the childcare grant runs from are available from the office.
