Guide To Financial Help Towards Your Nursery Fees
Ask your employer about their provision of childcare vouchers. We accept all recognised childcare vouchers. If you require further information contact your local Children's information service.
Nursery Education Grant
The LEA early years government funding (grant) is for 3 and 4 year olds. All children are entitled to the funding, the term after their third birthday. The maximum amount of hours you can claim is 15 per week term time this is over 38 weeks (Term Time only). You are also able to claim the 15 hours over the full year by claiming 10/11 hours per week, an additional 15 hours is available for children who are eligible. Please contact the nursery for more information regarding Government Funding and your options.
A Parental Contract form will need to be completed stating that your child attends the setting and the sessions in which they attend. This is then sent to Stockport Council and the funding will be deducted off your nursery fees.
We are now able to offer two year old funding to those who are eligible, please see your health visitor for more information and a confirmation letter. This can be claimed the same way as the Three Year old funding.
