3 and 4 year olds

All 3 & 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week over 38 weeks and some children are entitled to 30 hours. You can find out more about the different session times below.

Parents who work may be eligible to claim 30 hours free childcare. You can visit to apply for the 30 hours. 

Funded places start from the term following their 3rd birthday until children reach compulsory school age (the beginning of the term following their 5th birthday).

This means that if their birthday is during the period April to August they can access their free funded sessions from the following September; if their birthday is during the period September to December they can access their free funded sessions from the following January; and if born during the period January to March they can access their free funded sessions after the Easter break in April. 

If you would like to visit to have a look around our nursery and see what we can offer then just get in touch with us by phone (01427 811610) or email (  and we will arrange a time to show you around that suits you. Or you can fill in this online form

As we are a school, we do ask that you do fully commit the entirety of your child’s 15 or 30-hour funding to us; we are unable to split these core hours with other settings or providers. 

If you need more than your allocated 15 or 30-hours then that is absolutely fine. Any additional sessions are charged at £5 per hour and these can be paid for with childcare vouchers, via tax-free childcare or by cash or cheque.  

Please note that as we are a school we are only open during the term time and we close during school holidays.
