Help with Fees

Getting Help In Paying Nursery Fees

Did you know that there are a number of different ways that you can get help paying for childcare? Below we have listed the most common methods and added the website and phone number where you can get more information.

Funded Nursery Places for 3 and 4 Year Olds

The government provides funding which entitles all 3 and 4 year olds to a free nursery education place for up to 6 terms before they reach statutory school age (the beginning of the term following their 5th birthday). A child is entitled to up to 5 sessions per week of 2 and a half hours per session for 38 weeks of the year (roughly term times). The money is paid directly to the nursery by the council which means that there is nothing for you to pay!

For information on whether your child is eligible (based solely on birth date), please ask at the nursery.
