Our Nursery Admits:
Generally, children will start at nursery at the beginning of a term. Eligibility for the Early Years Funding for two-year-olds is from the start of the funding period following a child’s second birthday. Eligibility for all three-years-olds to receive the Early Years Funding is at the start of the funding period following their third birthday. This funding will be paid up until the time when the child reaches statutory school age if the parent chooses to defer or delay entry into school.
Patterns of Attendance Available
We are required to offer the Early Years Funding in a flexible way. Our school makes a core offer for the universal 570-hour funding entitlement of:
If you choose an afternoon or an all-day session this includes the lunchtime period that is 12:00–12:45pm. This time is part of the day when children continue their learning and will be funded as part of the Early Years Funding if that is what parents/carers choose. We are not permitted to charge separately for this time if it is being taken as part of a funded session.
If parents want to buy additional hours on top of the 15 funded hours or the 30-hour extended entitlement, they can do this during our opening times at a rate of £12 per session.
