Two Year Funding:
If eligible, your child can attend 3 sessions (days are dependent on availability) 9am-2pm. You can provide your child with a packed lunch, or we can provide snacks and lunch at a cost of £7 per week. If you work, you can use your child’s 15 hours and top up where necessary. We will require your TYF code prior to booking a place.
3 & 4 Year Funding:
15 hours: The term after a child turns 3 years of age, they are eligible for 15 hours of childcare. You may use these at a school nursery or at a Private Pre-School such as Sunnydale. We offer these in either full day sessions (8am-6pm) Mornings (8am-1pm) or afternoons (1-6pm) The funding covers the cost of education only, therefore there is a small food cost of £4.00 per session (AM/PM) Alternatively, you can provide your child with a packed lunch and their own snack. We offer these 15 hours during term time only.
3 & 4 Year Funding

Some schools offer these hours and you can also share the hours between two different settings.
