15 And 30 Hour Funding
We offer the government universal 15 hour funding, which provides funding for a nursery education place for up for 15 hours per week to all 3 and 4 year olds. Children are eligible for the funding from the term after they turn 3. The child's 3rd birthday needs to occur on or before March 31, August 31 and December 31 to be eligible for the funding from the following term.
We also accept the extended 30 hours funding for those parents who are eligible. To check please visit https://www.gov.uk/apply-30-hours-free-tax-free-childcare
We will apply to Wandsworth council on behalf of parents once a child is eligible. The funding provided does not cover the total cost of placing a child in our nursery, therefore we charge an additional hours and services package. The additional services charge is due to the cost of providing qualified staff of a high calibre; maintaining a smaller teacher to child ratio; the provision of peripatetic staff to deliver extra curricular activities including sport, music/drama, yoga, gymnastics, karate and dance, in addition to Forest School, hot lunches, snacks and other consumables. The funded hours are offered between 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 12.30 p.m. – 3.30 p.m. each day.
