Nursery Education Funding


Children receive Nursery Education Funding from the term following their third birthday. Terms are set by the Council as 1st September, 1st January and 1st April regardless of the actual term start dates.


Parents can claim up to 15 hours of pre-school sessions per week.  Any additional hours over the funded 15 hours will be charged at our standard hourly rate (please see our Admissions page). 


We send claim forms each term to all eligible children, and parents are required to indicate how many of these hours they wish to claim for.  We accept children who are eligible for extended funded (3 and 4 year olds who meet eligibility criteria) for up to the 27.5 hours a week we are open. We also accept children funded from two years old.
