Early Years funding

  • 2 YEAR-OLD FUNDING (FOR ELIGIBLE CHILDREN AGED 2): some children aged 2 are eligible for funded childcare. We offer this funding on a “stretched” basis which gives up to 11 funded hours per week for 50 weeks of the year. For information on eligibility, please ask for details or see the websites listed below.
  • UNIVERSAL FUNDING FOR CHILDREN AGED 3-4: all children aged 3-4 are eligible to receive Early Years funding. We offer this funding on “stretched” basis which gives up to 11 funded hours per week for 50 weeks per year.
  • EXTENDED FUNDING FOR ELIGIBLE CHILDREN AGED 3-4 (for working parents): eligible working families with children aged 3-4 can apply for extended funding (sometimes known as the “30 hours funding”). We offer this funding on “stretched” basis which gives up to 22 funded hours per week for 50 weeks per year. It is the responsibility of parents to apply for this funding and please note that parents need to reconfirm their eligibility throughout the year (council requirement).
  • STRETCHED FUNDING: Please be aware the stretched funding from the government is only for 50 weeks per year and doesn’t include one week at Christmas and the last week of August. Fees will be applicable for the August week.
  • FUNDING FOR CHILDREN AGED 4: Please also be aware that children aged 4 usually receive a reduced number of funded hours in the 2 terms before they start primary school. this is due to the way the council allocates funding.
  • ADDITIONAL HOURS: all funded children can book additional sessions / hours. These will be charged at our standard rates.
  • SESSION AVAILABILITY: We try to be as flexible as possible with our sessions but, due to demand, it is not usually possible to book funded places on a “mornings only” basis. All sessions are subject to availability and there may be a waiting list for popular sessions.
  • FUNDING START DATE: Please note that Early Years funding starts the school term after the child’s 2nd or 3rd birthday and does not, therefore, apply immediately after the child’s birthday.
  • MINIMUM SESSION LENGTH: our session options are shown above. Our minimum session is 4 hours and we cannot register children for shorter sessions. This means for example, that if you receive 11hours of funding per week and you wish to book 3 sessions per week (12 hours in total), your funding will cover 11 hours and you will be charged the normal rate for 1 hour.
  • Please note that due to demand, it is not usually possible to book mornings only.

If however, the directors and management decide that the nursery has to close for reasons beyond our control such as snow, ice, flood, power-cut, industrial action, major health & safety issues, high levels of sickness, closure recommended by the local council or by other government authorities, etc, no refunds will be due. In such cases, we will make every effort to minimise the closure period and to notify you in advance.

  • We ask parents, children and households to adhere to all current government guidelines regarding social distancing, self-isolation, etc which are designed to minimise the spread of infectious diseases such as Covid-19. If the nursery becomes aware of any breach of such guidelines, your child may be unable to attend nursery for a period of time as this may put other children, parents, staff, etc at risk.
  • Our key nursery policies are displayed in the entrance hall and we ask all parents to read these and contact us if they have any questions. These policies and all our other policies and procedures are also available by email on request.
  • Please ensure that you have read our privacy policy. Jack and Jill Nursery will only use your / your child’s personal information to provide a childcare service. The nursery will use your personal details to send you information about your child and about the nursery by email / phone / Family messaging system.

  • The nursery will send you invoices and other important updates and information by email or via the Family app. It is therefore essential that the nursery has an up-to-date email address for you.
