15 hours funding

The term after a child turns 3 they are entitled to 15 hours funding some Parents/Carers are eligible for 30 hours funding which we are now accepting (Subject to terms and conditions).

The funding forms will be sent to us at the beginning of each term for you to fill in to specify how many hours you are claiming with us.

30 hours funding – who is eligible?
Eligibility is based on income earned, not hours worked, so if a parent works for less than 16 hours, but in that time, earns more than the equivalent of 16 hours per week at national living wage (or minimum wage for under-25s), they will still be eligible for the 30-hour offer.
Two parent families where both parents work, or one parent families where the parent works and earns the equivalent of 16 hours at national living wage may be eligible for 30 hours funding.

We can check to see if your child is eligible using your national insurance and date of birth.
