Early Education Funding
2 Year Early Education Funding
Some families maybe entitled to funded places the term after their child turns two years of age. Please check this link for further details:
3 / 4 Year Early Education Funding
All children aged 3 and 4 years are entitled to up to 15 hours per week of nursery education funding from the term after the child’s third birthday. At Chestnuts we offer the full Early Education Funding grant of 15 hours to all parents of 3 and 4 year olds and all parents of 2 year olds who meet the eligibility criteria. We also offer the 30 hours childcare to eligible working parents of 3 and 4 year olds. The first 15 hours is universal and the additional 15 hours is known as the extended entitlement for working families.
The 15 hours and 30 hours of funding can only be taken during term time. The 30 hours of funding can be split between two different settings.
Government grants for 3 and 4 years olds will be deducted from the fees. Please, see fees for children receiving the 15 / 30 hour of Early Education Funding:
Should you wish your child to attend additional hours, these will be charged at £9.50 per hour. If you wish for your child to have lunch or high tea outside of your 15 / 30 hours, a fee of £4.15 will be charged for lunch and £2.14 for high tea.
