FUNDING

Funding is a complex topic and we have included a table below to give some clarity. Contact us for further information that may be more relevant to your circumstances.

A few important notes on funding:

  • Funded hours DO NOT cover the charges for meals or sundries (nappies, wipes, and certain resources)

  • Funding applies only for 38 weeks of the year (term-time)

  • Where a child attends all-year-round, we will ‘stretch’ the funding so that parents may benefit fully, or where¬† there is wrap-around care, have lower bills over the whole year.
