Paying for childcare
Childcare can be expensive for parents but there are lots of options to help reduce the cost of childcare and in some circumstances access free childcare.
You could be entitled to help with childcare costs, please see www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs for more information or see below for specific schemes you may be eligible for.
Research shows children who go to nurseries, pre-schools and childminders make good progress with their language, physical and social development. When the time comes for school they settle in quickly and do well in their new class.
In our home from home setting we are able to offer funded spaces to children and work together with parents to provide quality childcare at affordable prices.
We are always here to offer help and advise, you can contact us via Facebook, email, calling us or filling out the contact us form on the bottom of each page.

Tax free childcare
Parents will be able to open a new childcare account. For every £8 a parent pays into their childcare account, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can get up to £2000 government support per child per year towards their childcare costs - that's up to £500 every 3 months. If they have a disabled child, they can receive up to £4000 per child – a total of £1000 every 3 months. They can then use this money to pay their childcare provider.

15 hours per week (term time) FREE nursery education
All children are eligible for 15 hours free nursery education (in term time) starting from the term after their third birthday.
The terms are January, April and September. For example if your child turns 3 in December they could access their 15 hours free education from January. Parents also have the option (where available)of splitting their hours over the year by using 11 hours per week all year round rather than 15 hours term time only.
