15 hours entitlement – 3 & 4 year olds

All parents are entitled to receive government funding for their child the term after their child’s 3rd birthday.  Funding is available to all 3 and 4 year olds and no eligibility criteria needs to be met.   

Children are able to access 570 hours of funding per year which totals:
15 hours a week x 38 weeks a year during term time
but can also be ‘stretched’ further over the year.

Our ‘stretched’ offer

As Seasides is open 51 weeks of the year, we only offer the funding stretched over
50 weeks, therefore totalling 11.4 hours per week.

We offer the following pattern of attendance for early education funded places:

  • Funding is to be taken over an agreed set 2 day period
  • From the hours of 9am to 3pm ONLY
  • 50 weeks of the year (excludable week being the last week before the nursery closes for Christmas)     
  • Wrap around care charged at £6 per hour, available from 8-9am and from 3-6pm
  • All meals, snacks and drinks included.
