Willows Funding Information

Most children start at Willows in the term after their second birthday. If you meet the government specified criteria, including eligibility for free school meals, you may be able to access 15 hours funded education for your child from the age of two.

 

Places are also available for 3 year olds, in their pre-nursery year. All 3 year olds are entitled to 15 hours funded education each week (from the term after their third birthday), or for eligible working families, there are 30 hour places available.

 

Willows also provides care to children whose parents do not receive funding and parents using 15 hour funding can top-up their funded sessions by paying for additional hours. The sessions run from 8.45-11.45 & 12.15-3.15 and cost £15 per session. There is a daily lunch club, which is a 'paid for' service at £4.00 a session. This can be booked when your child has settled into Willows, according to availability.
