Government Funding

The term after your child turns 2 they may be entitled to 15 hours funded education, funding depending on your personal circumstances. Please see the nursery management for more information or visit childcare choices.

All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of funded nursery education for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they start school. Funded nursery education can only be offered by Ofsted registered settings.

The funding entitlement is paid directly to us. We will automatically deduct the funding entitlement from your fees each month from the start of the term after your child turns 3.

You will be asked to sign a form before each term so we can process payments.

Must attend over at least 2 days to claim full entitlement.      

If you meet the government criteria for the 30 funded hours, for children aged 3 and 4 years, please visit

Help with payment of childcare


Tax free childcare

You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).


Your eligibility depends on:

  • if you’re working (employed, self-employed, or both)

  • your income (and your partner’s income, if you have one)

  • your child’s age and circumstances

  • your immigration status


Universal Credit

You may be able to claim back up to 85% of your childcare costs if you’re eligible for Universal Credit.

You (and your partner if you live with them) will usually need to either:

  • be working - it does not matter how many hours you or your partner work

  • have a job offer
