Nursery Funding and Fees

15 Hours Free Childcare


All families are entitled to 15 hours of funded childcare per week.  We ask that these are taken as five mornings, five afternoons, or two full days and a half day.


30 Hours Free Childcare


Some working parents and carers will be eligible for 30 hours of funded childcare per week.  You can find out more information about this benefit by visiting


Purchase of Additional Nursery Sessions


If you are not eligible for 30 hours funded childcare, there may be the opportunity to purchase additional morning or afternoon sessions, subject to availability.  For those children attending a morning session, there is an option to bring a packed lunch and stay until 1.00pm.  Additional sessions and lunchtimes are invoiced half-termly and can be paid for by childcare voucher, on ParentPay, or by cash or cheque.
