We also offer 30 hours funded nursery care for those eligible families. All children are eligible to 15 hours funding for nursery. Working families may also be eligible for 30 hours funding from September 2017. Please click on the following link to check your eligibility: Staffordshire EYFS Leaflet

For children who fulfil the government eligibility criteria and who are in receipt of 30 hours of free entitlement their hours will be 8.55am – 3.15pm Monday to Thursday, 8.55am – 1.15pm on Friday with the option to pay £6 each session to stay until 3.15pm.

All children are eligible for the 15 hours and can pay an additional £12 per session to stay until 3.15pm each day.
