Early Years Entitlement Funding (EYE funding) details: 

We are in receipt of EYE funding for two, three and four year olds.  EYE funding for three year olds will be available from the term after a child’s third birthday.  EYE funding is 15 hours per week over 38 weeks as we are a term time only nursery.

Example attendance patterns for 15 hours per week:

Five Mornings, Five Afternoons, Two Full Days (This would be 13.5 hours)

It is also possible to combine your 15 EYE funded hours with extra paid-for sessions. For example:
One full day and three mornings/afternoons – 15.75 hours
Two full days, and one morning/afternoon – 16.5 hours
Three full days – 20.25 hours
In these cases, you would simply pay the hourly rate for any time over the entitlement of 15 hours.
30 Hours Funding

We also offer the extended entitlement of 30 funded hours for eligible families. To find out if you may be entitled to this, please visit:

We are able to offer a range of attendance patterns to suit different families’ needs. Please contact us if you would like to speak to us further about this.
