Nursery entitlement

At present, all three and four year old children are entitled to receive 15 hours of free, flexible early education/childcare per week, 38 weeks per year.   

From September 2017 this will double to 30 hours a week, for up to 38 weeks (1140 hours a year), for 3 and 4 year olds whose parents are working. The aim is to help families by reducing the costs of childcare, to support parents to increase the number of hours they work and/or encourage them into employment.  However, this increase will only be available to families who meet certain criteria. The information we have with regard to who will be eligible for 30 hours free childcare, is as below:

Who will be eligible?

The additional hours will be available to families where:

Your child will be aged 3 or 4

National minimum or National Living wage

Each parent must have an annual income of less than £100,000

You must live in England 

How do I apply for the additional hours?

There will be an application process for 30 hours free childcare in order to prove your eligibility, this will have to be renewed every 3 months to ensure parents are still working and meet the criteria for the funding.

We are able to offer several alternatives; you can apply for any one of the following  for your child:

A free place for 15 hours per week – Monday to Friday, 3 hours each day, specifying mornings or afternoons for the week.

A 30 hour per week place – Monday to Friday, 6 hours each day – morning and  afternoon sessions, for families who do not meet the criteria who will then have  to pay for hours in addition to their 15 free hours, (subject to availability).

You may pay top up for extra morning sessions or afternoon sessions on top of your free 15 hours.  Eg, if you have 5 mornings, you may pay for extra sessions in the afternoon ranging from 1 to 5 extra sessions.  (subject to availability)

If your child attends full time or for a full day, you will need to provide a packed lunch or pay for a school meal.  There will also be a charge for the lunchtime provision.  This is in addition to the 30 hours.  So even if you are eligible for the free 30 hours there will be an additional charge for lunchtime.
