All children aged 3 & 4 years are entitled to up to fifteen hours per week of nursery education funding from the term after the child’s third birthday.
These hours can be taken flexibly over the morning and afternoon sessions provided staff ratios are met. This amount will be deducted from the session fees for Chestnuts and will be shown on your invoice.
Some 2 year olds are also eligible for funding.
We offer the 15 hours Extended Funding term time or it can be stretched flexibly to cover up to 51 weeks.
To see if you meet the criteria for either 2 year old funding or the Extended Funding, please go to:
Childcare Voucher Schemes
Fees can be paid through various employer childcare voucher schemes. Chestnuts is currently registered with majority of providers.
Please contact us for the relevant registration number.
We recognise that some parents work flexibly or have changing shift patterns. At the time of registration we can agree to flexible childcare arrangements for those parents who are able to give a six month shift pattern.
Please note that all holidays, periods of sickness and closure due to unforeseen circumstances incur fees for all parents.
Depending on availability and staff ratios, additional sessions can be added at short notice.
