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 automatically 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 £4.50

2.5 hours sessions (afternoons in Autumn Term)      £11.25 per session

3 hour sessions (all other sessions)                          £13.50 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.

30 Hour extended funding entitlement for working parents

For parents who are eligible for this extended funding, you are able to spend up to 15hrs of this entitlement with us.

Go to the website

www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/

From here you can find out if you are eligible. You will then be sent a code which any setting where you wish to claim all or part of the funding from, will need. This need to be done in plenty of time before you intend to use it.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ( Nov 2017)

If you have already applied for/or claimed up to 30hrs of free childcare and/or Tax-Free Childcare, you must reconfirm your eligibility even if your circumstances haven’t changed. You must do this even though your child not have started their 30 hr place. You must do this approx. 3 months from the date you applied to continue to receive the extra hours. Log onto your childcare account to check your date for reconfirming. You will get a reminder email from HMRC to do this. The document below is information about how to do this.
