Nursery Education Grant (3 and 4 year old funding) 

All children are entitled to the Nursery Education Grant which commences the term after a child becomes 3 years old.

These children are entitled to 15 hours per week during term time or 11 hours per week all year around.
The government offer 30 hours’ term time funding for working parents of 3-4 year olds, where both parents are working & earning the equivalent of at least 16 hours each (minimum wage) and with a cap of £100K.
We are offering these places but divided throughout the entire year, this equates to 22 hours per week. To apply please visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk 


The rate received from the government does not cover snacks, meals, creative resources or cookery resources therfore the nursery charges £1.36 per funded hour to cover these additional items.
