Some families are entitled to 30 hours funded education with eligibility based on parents’ working hours and income. These children are offered their extended funded hours within the Nursery School day (between 8.50am and 3.30pm) during term times. There is no charge for these Nursery School sessions.
To support the needs of parents who may require childcare in addition to their funded entitlement, there are options for families who need breakfast sessions (from 8am), lunch sessions, and/or after school sessions (until 6pm), who can pay for these additional hours, whilst taking advantage of their free hours. We also offer families the option to access year-round childcare during the school holidays as a paid-for addition to their funded hours. There are limited places available for these additional sessions, and places are allocated in accordance with our admissions policy. All additional sessions are provided in an integrated way by ACE Childcare, operated by the ACE Centre Charity.
