Funding is available which provides up to 15 hours free pre-school care from the term after your child turns 3. This can be taken flexibly e.g. starting at 9am or 9:30am and/or including lunchtime.

Funding for 3 and 4 year olds is fairly straightforward and you will receive a form at the start of term which will need to be returned once completed to pre-school.

We may be able to offer free places to eligible 2 year olds – please visit, select Education and Learning from the left hand menu and follow the links from the Family Information Service. Here you should find the link to the form that will assess whether or not you are eligible for free 2 year old places. You will need your NI number handy.

For unfunded children fees are currently charged at a rate of £5.50 per hour (rates set Sept 2020)
