Opening Times and Funding
Modern working life can often mean longer hours in the office and we know how important it is to parents to be there when they need us.
We’re open five days a week between 7.45am and 6pm, all year-round (excluding bank holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year).
We offer places for both Universal (15 hours/week, term-time only or 11 hours a week all year round) and Extended (22.8 hours/week all year round) Early Years childcare funding options for children aged between 3 and 5 years old.
We appreciate that term-time only funding (39 weeks) does not work for many parents/carers, so we’re pleased to offer funded places stretched out over 50 weeks. This means that you would be entitled to fewer funded hours per week, but this would cover more of the year:
• 15 hours per week over 33 weeks becomes 11 hours stretched over 50 weeks
• 30 hours per week over 33 weeks becomes 22.8 hours stretched over 50 weeks
Universal childcare funding begins from the start of the academic term after your child’s third birthday.
We also offer funded places to 2 year olds. Check your eligibility here.
2Y = 2 Year old funding (Golden / Purple Ticket)
Universal EYE = Early Years Entitlement (Term following 3rd birthday)
Extended EYE = Early Years Entitlement for working parents (Code from HMRC)
* Please bear in mind that while 2 Year Old funded sessions include meals, Universal and Extended Early Years funded sessions do not so if your child continues to have meals following the funding change then you will be responsible for payments for those meals.
If you have any questions about our prices and sessions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
