The government will fund 15 hours a week, for 38 weeks of the year free nursery education which is paid directly to the nursery.

In order to claim this funding you will need to provide a copy of your child's birth certificate and complete a declaration stating where you are claiming the free entitlement.

We will spread the funding over the 12 months and reduce your fees accordingly. We will provide you with a breakdown of your early years funding entitlement.


30 hours funding for 3 & 4 year olds

The government is offering working parents of 3 and 4 year olds 30 hours free nursery education. Parents need to apply for the funding online at HMRC Childcare Choices. If your application is successful then you will be given a reference number which needs to be given to the nursery.


In order to receive the funding the code needs to be given to nursery the term before funding begins and will be subject to eligibility checking via Hounslow Early Years. September to December – code needs to be given to the nursery by the middle of August, January to March – code needs to be given to the nursery by the middle of November and April to July – code needs to be given to the nursery by the middle of March.


Any extra sessions that you wish to add on top of these sessions will be charged at our normal rates.

Should you wish to book your 30 hours please let us know as soon as possible as spaces are limited.
