We offer a range of free sessions that you may be entitled to.
30 Hour Extended Entitlement
Free Entitlement for all 3 & 4 Year Olds
Free Entitlement is a government grant which funds all children aged 3 & 4 years old to have up to 15 hours per week free education before they start school. This funding is not means tested and available to all children over 3. Only nurseries with a ‘Good’ Ofsted or better are approved. Futurepath’ administration staff will apply for this funding on your behalf and the amount is credited to your account. We offer both Standard and Stretched offers.
If your employer operates a childcare voucher scheme, you can save National Insurance and Income Tax. By registering for your employer’s scheme, up to £55 a week can be deducted from your salary and used to provide childcare vouchers for the same amount. This amount, which is deducted from your gross salary, is then exempt from National Insurance and Income Tax.
Free Settling In Sessions
Before your child starts at nursery, you will be invited to bring them for introductory sessions which enable them to have short visits prior to their start date. There is no charge for these sessions, and they give you’re the opportunity to discuss your child’s needs with their key carer.
We are approved for 2 year old funding.
