Fees, Funding & Sessions
Our Nursery year starts in September and runs through until July, this is called an academic year. Nursery is open 8:40am to 3:10pm Monday to Friday during term time, which supports the school day and our school holiday periods are also the same.
For the current academic year 2023 to 2024, we offer fully funded Nursery places with no hidden charges. Parents who can claim the early years funded entitlement can take their funding between the Nursery opening hours of 8:40am to 2:40pm. If your child is not old enough for funding or does not meet eligibility for the extended entitlement, parents are offered the opportunity to pay for a place at our Nursery. Remember you may also be able to access other financial support towards your childcare costs, such as tax-free childcare.
ALL children are eligible for 15 hours of Nursery funding a week from the term after they turn three, this is called the "universal offer".
Working parents may be eligible for an additional 15 hours a week, an extended entitlement and often called "30 hours funding".
The Government has recently announced changes to early years funding which will be phased in from April 2024. Once we have more detail via the Government and Local Authority, we can review our current nursery offer to see how we might be able to support some of the changes for our local community.
