30 Hour Nursery Provision

Nursery Entitlement

All 3 and 4-year olds are entitled to 15 hours a week free early education.  Children can receive 15 hours of free early education per week, 38 weeks per year (570 hours across the year).  Free places are offered as 15 hours spread over a week in term time.  Or the hours can be stretched out to meet your needs. Children can take up a place at Manor from the term after their third birthday. To register for Manor, please contact us directly.

The Nursery at Manor Primary School proudly offers 30 hour funded childcare for 3 and 4 year olds of working parents. The government has extended the free 15 hours childcare funding for three and four year olds to an additional 15 hours hours for eligible working families. Funding can be available the term after your child has turned three years of age but you must apply the term before you want your child to take up a place.

You may be eligible for this funding if you meet this criteria:

  • Both parents are working (or the sole parent is a lone parent family) and each parent earns on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage (NMW).
  • A weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage, less than £100,000 per year per parent/carer.

Applications for places are open. Go to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to apply and learn more about the criteria.  You must apply a term ahead to reserve a 30 hours place from next term. If you submit a successful application, you will be issued with a 30 hours code to give to your approved childcare provider. 30 hours funding will only be available from the term after the start date of your 30 hours code. 

If you are accessing additional charges for your care you may also be eligible for tax free childcare or other government support shown on the website.
