The universal entitlement for all 3 and 4-year-olds of 15 hours a week (5 sessions per week) for 38 weeks of the year is available to every child. You do not need to apply for this funding. Each term we will issue every family with an Early Years Claim form.
From 1 September 2017 the Government extended the free childcare entitlement for working parents of 3 and 4-year-olds to 30 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year (1,140 hours per year).
The 30 hours free childcare entitlement was introduced alongside a new scheme to help working families with the cost of childcare called Tax-Free Childcare. Ashleigh Nursery will be offering 30 funded hours to working parents who qualify for the additional hours.
