Help with your childcare costs

A breakdown of our costs are available on request and we frequently benchmark against local nurseries to continuously remain competitive. Please see below for various payment and childcare support options.

Early Education Funding

From the term after your child turns 3 years old, they will be eligible for funded nursery sessions up to 15 hours per week for 38 weeks or 12 hours over 48 weeks.  This is funded by the County Council and paid directly to the nursery.  Please ask for further details.

30 hours funding

You may be entitled to a further 15 hours in addition to the above funding if you are a working parent.  Please see Childcare Choices website for full details –

2 year old Funding

From the term after your child turns 2 years old, there is funding available to families who receive various benefits or tax credits.  We can also refer children who have any special or additional needs.  We can offer 3 half days per week on this scheme.  For more information see
