Funded Places

15 Hours

We are eligible to receive government funding, so children can have 15 Hours free education and care each week, starting the term after their third birthday. If you would like further details how this scheme could be of benefit to you, please contact us directly.

30 Hours

We are approved as a provider for the 30 hours funded places for eligible families.

We operate our Nursery & Pre-School across 51 weeks of the year, excluding bank holidays. The council agree to pay for 30 hours across term time only, therefore to ensure the benefit is spread evenly across the year, we allocated what is called a ‘stretch’ scheme of 22 hours care a week.


Our advertised fees include all meals. However, the funding we receive from the council is for the care and education we provide and does not cover additional services such as meals.

As a result, we offer 2 meal options:

  1. Your child brings their own pre-packed meals and snacks for the day (see appropriate meal guidelines); or
  2. Your child eats the Highfield House Nursery & Pre-School meals and snacks provided.


Meals will be charged as follows:

Breakfast: £2.00

Lunch: £4.00

Tea: £3.00

Snacks: £0.50

Total per day: £10.00


Please note that any non-funded hours, already includes the cost of all meals and these will continue to be provided by us at no extra cost
