We offer the Free Early Years Entitlement funding for all 3 and 4 year olds.  We also have some places available for funded 2 year olds.

3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week over 38 weeks from the term following their 3rd birthday until they reach compulsory school age (the beginning of the term following their 5th birthday). This means that, if their birthday is during the period April to August, they would access their free funded sessions from the following September; if their birthday is during the period September to December, they would access their free funded sessions from the following January; and, if born during the period January to March, they would access their free funded sessions after the Easter break in April).


Many working parents will be eligible for 30 hours of funded childcare.

We also offer Parents/Carers the option to purchase additional sessions.  Please see the tables below to see which sessions you can use with your funded hours and which sessions come as an additional cost if required.
