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.
We are able to offer a range of attendance patterns to suit different families’ needs. Please contact usif you would like to speak to us further about this.
We operate a waiting list system. If you would like to apply for a place for your child, see the bottom of the page for our Placement Form. Please fill this in and return by post, email or in person to the Nursery. These forms are also available from Bishops Lydeard Church School and Nursery if you would prefer to collect one.
