Government Funded Hours

The start of the school term after a child's 2nd birthday, they may become eligible for Government funded hours of attendance which will provide a further reduction in the Over 2's Fees quoted above.

The Government currently operates three schemes:

Over Two's : Parents will need to apply through their borough of residence to see if they qualify.

Standard Over Three's : All children over the age of 3 are eligible for this, and will be normally sourced through the setting.

Additional Over Three's : Parents whose is over the age of 3 years old will need to apply directly through the National Government to see if their child qualifies to receive the additional funded hours.

The exact amount is dependent on a number of factors, with the maximum reduction for children over the age of 3 years old being close to £580.00. A accurate breakdown of the new Parent Contribution can be provided on request.
