We are pleased to offer England’s new 30 hour funded childcare entitlement for 3-5 year olds at of our English Nurseries, and will continue to offer the 15 hour council funded childcare scheme where preferred.

Applying for 30 Hour Funded Childcare

In order to access 30 hours funded childcare, you will need to confirm your eligibility and collect a unique code through HMRC. Eligibility for funded childcare is income-based, and there are set cut-off dates for applying for funded childcare throughout the year.

You will then need to provide our nursery team with your unique code number. We then have to validate this in order for us to arrange to register your child’s place

Acceptance of funded places within our nursery is dependent on our availability.

Supplementary Charges

Bookings made under the 30 hour funded contract are subject to supplementary charges, as per Department of Education Guidelines. These charges are designed to cover costs associated with hot lunches, healthy snacks and extracurricular activities over and above the basic funded provision.

How Funding Applies to Your Nursery Fees

Following consultation with our current families, we have decided to ‘stretch’ the 30 hour funding entitlement from term-time only cover to year-round cover full. This equates to 22 hours of funded childcare per week which can be assigned to varied session patterns. If you desire a term-time only place, you may wish to consider 15 hour funding as an alternative. Please contact us to discuss further.

Tax Credits

If you receive tax credits the amount you are eligible for may be affected by using childcare vouchers. You can check whether you would be better off taking childcare vouchers through this free online calculator www.hmrc.gov.uk/calcs/ccin.htm

Many families do not take advantage of the financial help that is available to them for the cost of childcare. Families on middle as well as low incomes may be entitled to financial support such as Child Tax Credit or Working Tax Credit.  This extra help – called ‘the childcare element of working tax credits’ – is available to individuals on lower incomes to help with the cost of childcare. The amount received is dependent on your circumstances and income, but could cover up to 70% of your childcare costs.

To be eligible, lone parents must work 16 hours or more per week, for couples, both partners must work 16 hours or more or one partner must work 16 hours or more per week if the other is unable to work for specific reasons.  To find out more and see if you are eligible for assistance, please visit:
