Nursery Education Funding and Fees

Funding for 2 year olds and 3 and 4 year olds

We are registered to accept the Nursery Education Grant and 3 & 4 year old funding. We receive support for this funding from Bradford Local Authority

A child becomes eligible for the funding, from the beginning of the term that follows their 3rd birthday. Each child is entitled  FREE Early Education for  15 hours a week, 38 weeks per year. Once your child is old enough to claim, our Admin manager will speak to parents.

We are also registered for 2 Year Old Funding, but unlike the 3 & 4 year old funding there are certain criteria which has to be met to claim this. To qualify, one of the following must be met:

Eligible for free school meals

Child who is Looked After

Low Income families and earning no more than £16190 a year

Children who have a current Statement of Educational Needs or an education, health and care plan

Disability Living allowance

Children who have left care through special guardianship or an adoption or residence order

If  you feel you could be eligible for this 2 year old funding please speak with our Admin Manager

Fees are payable for sessions not covered with the Nursery Education Grant

Any sessions not covered with the Nursery Grant or for sessions that your child accesses over the Free 15 hours entitlement, fees are as follows:

Hourly rate £4

2.5 hours sessions (afternoons in Autumn Term)      £10 per session

3 hour sessions (all other sessions)                          £12 per session

Fees are payable monthly in advance and parents will receive an invoice at the beginning of each month, the amount dependant upon how many sessions your child will attend that particular month .

Fees continue to be payable if absent through illness or holidays taken during term time. In cases of prolonged illness, please speak with the Admin Manager. Fees can be paid in cash or cheques payable to Addingham Pre-School please.

We are also happy to accept payments made by an employer who is registered with a Childcare Payment System. Again please speak to our Admin Manager about these schemes.
