We offer 15 Hours free funding for 2 year olds in receipt of a Golden Ticket.


All children are entitled to the government universal 15 hours free childcare in the term following their 3rd birthday subject to our availability. 15 hour funding is for term time only bookings.


We accept the 30 hours free entitlement for working parents. This is spread across the whole year rather than term time only so please remember the way funding works is that you are entitled per term to a fixed amount of hours which does not equal 30 hours per week when used over the whole year (this mainly effects the summer term which can be 22 weeks long so reduces hours per week).
