Children aged 3 and 4 

All children ages three and four are entitled to 15 free hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. These are called universal hours and they come to a total of 570 for 38 weeks.

 

Because we are open 48 weeks a year our children are entitled to 12 hours a week of free childcare. These will allocated pro rata with a maximum of 5 funded hours a day for the long day and at 3 funded hours for the short day. Extra hours have an hourly charge of £7.50 each. 

These can be claimed until the child starts school. and parents don’t need a code to receive the 15  universal hours.
