How does FREE funded places work?

The Government funds all preschool children between the ages of 3 and 5 years old to have a nursery education before they start school. Preschool funding is not means tested, so everyone can benefit!

The Government also funds 2-3 year olds *subject to eligibility.

Parents can claim up 15 hours and 50 minutes of nursery education per week during term time. Sessions run Monday to Friday, during the morning and afternoon, with each session lasting 3 hours and 10 minutes.

You can compress the sessions over a shorter number of days; to fit in with your families needs.

Sessions in Discoverers run during term time from 8.45am-11.55am and 12.50pm-4pm.

Sessions in Adventurers run during term time from 8.50am-Noon and 12.50pm-4pm.
