The Government have launched an initiative to help working parents with the cost of childcare for nursery age children.
If offered a 'funded' place, you will be entitled to 30 hours per week free childcare in our nursery.
For a two parent household, each partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £120 a week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage). If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you are unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsibilities, you could still be eligible.
You cannot get 30 hours free childcare if you, or your partner, expect to earn £100,000 or more or if you do not work at least 16 hours.
You can check your eligibility please register here.
In the current academic year there are only 5 'funded' places on offer, these places will be prioritised eligibility for these will be based on;

- Children eligibility for free school meals (please complete the section on the questionnaire if you feel you may questionnaire if you may qualify for this)
