We participate in the government’s 15 Hours Free Entitlement for eligible 2 year olds, the 15 Hours Free Universal Entitlement for all 3, & 4 year olds and the 30 Hours Extended Entitlement for eligible 3 and 4 year olds. This enables parents to receive, on a termly basis, 15 or 30 hours of free nursery place per week for their child for 38 weeks of the year (Term time only).
Children are entitled to the grant the term after their 2nd birthday for eligible two year olds and 3rd birthday for three & four year olds. Parents are able to choose how they wish to use the free entitlement. Please speak to the nursery manager about your specific requirement. A programme of learning is in place which aims to help children achieve a number of early learning goals by the end of what has been termed their foundation stage education (age 3-5)
