From 1st April, 1st September or 1st January, after your child's second birthday s/he may be eligible for 570 free hours if you are in receipt of one of the support payments listed above. You will be given a certificate to complete, each term, in order for us to claim your free entitlement
From 1st April, 1st September or 1st January, after your child's third birthday s/he is eligible for 570 free hours. You will be given a certificate to complete, each term, in order for us to claim your Early Years Funding.
We give you up to four, free, three hour sessions a week, all year round not just school term times. Because we sort it out this way we cannot share your entitlement with another provider. You must claim all or none of your free sessions with us.
You can claim free sessions in September if your child’s school start date is after the term begins.
In our nursery the free sessions are 9am-12pm (midday) and 2.00-5.00pm.
Preference is given to children who wish to take complete
mornings or afternoons.
If you wish to have two free sessions in one day you must pay for the period from 12.00-2.00pm, this will cost £12.
If you wish to have totally free spaces you may have up to four afternoon sessions each week.
If we have none of these free spaces available we
recommend you contact the Family Information Service on 293545 to find your nearest provider. This will usually be a school or Children’s Centre for term times only.
