Fees and Funding

Term time only, flexible and shift patterns are all accepted as part of our flexible childcare promise. However a minimum of two sessions per week must be booked to provide the children with continuity and enable them to form good relationships with the staff and our surroundings.

There are many ways that parents can obtain help with childcare costs. Please see below. 

Childcare Vouchers

You can take up to £55 a week of your wages as childcare vouchers, which you do not pay tax or National Insurance on.

How much you can take depends on the amount you earn and when you joined the scheme.

Tax free childcare

To replace childcare vouchers, tax free childcare will pay 20% of your childcare fees. This is transferred straight to the nursery through your online portal. 

Funded Childcare

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get free early education or childcare.

Some 2-year-olds are also eligible for 15 hours free childcare, for example if you get certain benefits.

Universal Credits

You may be able to claim Universal Credit to help cover the costs of approved childcare

You can apply for this even if you’re on leave or about to start a new job.
