We offer the Free Early Years Entitlement funding for all 3 and 4 year olds and eligible 2 year olds.

3 & 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week over 38 weeks from the term following their 3rd birthday until they reach compulsory school age (the beginning of the term following their 5th birthday). This means that if their birthday is during the period April to August they would access their free funded sessions from the following September; if birthday is during the period September to December they would access their free funded sessions from the following January; and if born during the period January to March they would access their free funded sessions after the Easter break in April). 

30 Hour Entitlement

Working parents of 3 to 4 year olds in England will be eligible for 30 hours of funded childcare – rather than the universal 15 hours. At St Giles Nursery school we offer 30 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year, within school term times.

Not every child will be eligible for the 30 hours but everyone will still receive the 15 hours funded childcare that is currently available.

For details of eligibility for the 30 hour childcare please follow the link below.
