Help Paying for childcare

We are in receipt of nursery education funding for two, three and four year olds; where funding is not received, then fees apply. Funded 2 year olds of working families and all 3 and 4 year olds in England are entitled up to 15 hours per week free childcare. This funding starts in the term after the child’s birthday. Terms start in January, April and September. We apply for funding on your behalf for 3 and 4 year olds. Please note: These childcare offers are not intended to cover the costs of meals, other consumables, additional hours or additional activities and we charge a fee for these additions. If you choose to pay for these it is an arrangement between you and Feathered Skies. However, you are not required to pay any fee as a condition of taking up a 15 or 30 hours place, and you can be offered alternative option, please speak to Jo Littlejohn.

If you think you may be eligible for the government’s funding please apply through their website at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.
