Free nursery places

We are registered providers of free nursery education for over 3 year olds.  If your child is over 3 they are entitled to 12.5 hours a week of free nursery education (during term time).  This is not means tested and is available to ALL children over 3 years old.

The Government provides early education funding to all local authorities so that a child can attend up to five free 2.5 hour sessions of early years education per week for up to 38 weeks a year at a registered childcare provider from the calendar block after their third birthday.
