Early Education Funding

Early Education Funding 

Springwood Nursery offers early education funding for all eligible families of children from 2 years old in April 2024 and for children from 9 months old in September 2024. 

Funding is paid during school term times only (38 weeks per year). The maximum allowance of funded hours for the academic year (September to July) is 570 for the 15-hour offer. Eligible parents of 3 and 4-year-olds may also receive a further 15 hours extended funding which equates to 1140 hours for the academic year. 

As a year-round provider, we stretch these hours so that you will receive some funded hours every week. The number of funded hours per week is prorated for children who start with us or become eligible at any time other than September. 

Please be aware that the government funding pays for your child’s time with us, it does not pay for the things that, as a full day care provider, we provide such as: meals, snacks, extracurricular activities, trips and outings, consumables, and online learning journeys. As a result, we apply an additional services fee.
