Some 2-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours free childcare when parents receive some benefits:

Some 3–4-year-olds are entitled to extra funding to help the Preschool to support your child’s education:

Some parents may benefit from the Tax-Free Childcare system. Check here to see:

Currently we offer a maximum of 25.5 hours a week. You may, therefore, wish to claim any additional entitlement through a second setting or childcare provider, including any Ofsted registered childminder.  We will complete the relevant forms with you.

Childcare Vouchers

We also wanted to highlight Childcare Voucher schemes that may be available to some of you. These can save you money by taking the cost out of your salary before your PAYE is deducted (and so reducing the amount of tax you need to pay).
For more information please see or talk to your HR Representative at work who may be able to inform you of the voucher scheme that they use. There are several different organisations that businesses can obtain childcare vouchers from, we are happy to register with any of them where necessary to ensure you can spend your vouchers at our setting.
