Government Funded places are available for children three to four years old. This currently entitles children to free funding for 15 universal hours each week and for eligible parents 29 hours of extended funding, in line with the Government 30 free hour funding initiative. The child must be aged 3 before the start of the new term. 


Funding is also available for some 2 year olds subject to certain criteria. More information on Government Funding is available in the Claims Booklet located on our Policies page.  Sue and her deputy (see Contact Us) will also be able to tell you if your child qualifies. 


Fees are currently £5.50 per hour which is payable monthly in advance or weekly by special arrangement. Payment is for the place and not for the actual session attended. From September 2022 fees will be £6.00 per hour.
