How to use your entitlement
As part of the phase 3 of the expansion, we run as model 4; term-time only over 38 weeks. Children will be entitled to 30 funded hours a week over 38 weeks. Sessions will be for 6-hour full days.
A funded session is from 9am-3pm.
It is possible to combine your funded hours with unfunded hours or with more than one nursery setting.
What being a partner nursery means
To become a council partner nursery, we had to meet certain criteria and have gone through a rigorous procurement process. We deliver exactly the same curriculum as the local authority nurseries and are inspected by the same officers. Being a partner allows us to have access to a nursery teacher provided by the local authority each term. The staff benefit from training events and network meetings provided by the council, which help us ensure a high quality provision.
