Funded places: nursery, playgroup and childminders - ages 3 and 4

All children are eligible for a funded early learning and childcare place from the first available enrolment date after their third birthday.

A child is entitled to a maximum of 16 hours per week until a total of 600 hours per school year is reached.

This can be within one of our nursery classes or with a private or voluntary provider or childminder who is in partnership with us.

Different models of hours are offered by different providers and you should contact the head teacher/manager of your preferred provider to discuss how you wish to use these hours and what is available.
