Claiming of Government Grant Funding

We are registered to claim the Government Grant funding (FEEE) available for 3-5 year-olds for a trial period to help parents with fees. This funding will reduce fees payable by parents, and consequently the fees invoices for parents of 3-5 year old children will be for less than for 2 year olds.  We hope to continue in the Grant scheme.

We offer the funded hours as a package with additional services included in it which help us provide outstanding care and education but are not covered by the very basic government funding.  This is not a condition of the nursery to access your 15 hours of free entitlement.

The Nursery Grant (Free Early Education Entitlement) is available for up to 15 hours per week term time (11.4 hrs per week all year).  Please email us direct for more information.

Funded 3 and 4 year olds attending all year school are required to attend a minimum of 18 hours per week; the funding covers 11.10 hours per week over 51 weeks per year and is therefore accessed as part of a larger package.

Children may access the funded hours on their own by attending 1 day from 1pm to 6pm and 2 days 3pm to 6pm.

Our additional services package  includes:

* Fresh fruit or alternative break-time snack for each child every day. This promotes healthy eating at an early age.

* Some of our extra-curricular activities run by professional coaches are included in the fees, for example, tennis lessons, Spanish classes and music classes with Lucy Sparkles.

* Regular Forest School activities with two of our own qualified Level 3 Forest School Leaders.

* All of our staff have completed Paediatric First Aid course and we have achieved Millie's Mark award showing our commitment to providing a safe environment for children.

* My Montessori Child online learning journeys - this is an innovative software that allows our teachers to track each child's progress in achieving Montessori and EYFS goals. Each parent receives a log in and password and is able to see their child's progress as well as receive interactive home learning suggestions based on child's current interests.

* An extensive range of Montessori learning and play equipment designed to help children develop.

* Montessori trained and qualified staff.

* Extra staff to enable a 1:6 staff to child ratio for 3-4 year-olds. This enables more attention for each child at this important stage in their development, than the 1:8 ratio required by Early Years.

* Where a child attends more than 15 hours (term time) or 11.4hrs (all year) per week we also charge for the additional time.
