3 and 4 yr old funding

Early Years Free Entitlement Funding currently provides up to 15 hours per week for 38 weeks a year.  Currently a child becomes eligible for this funding the term after which they turn three years old. If both parents (or a lone parent) are working more than 16 hrs per week, you may be entitled to extended free funding totalling 30 hrs per week. To find out more please visit the childcare choices website. Any sessions not covered by Free Entitlement Funding, for example if your child is not yet eligible for Free Entitlement Funding, or attends for more than 15 hours a week will be charged to you at the normal hourly rate of £5 per hour.


Please note our Committee review our fees on an annual basis and they are therefore subject to change.

2yr old funding

From September 2014 the law changed to allow more two year olds to benefit from free childcare than ever before.   Wiltshire Council has branded the funding as ‘Better 2gether Funding’. To find out whether or not you might qualify for 2yr old funding please go to the Wiltshire Council website.

Snack Time

We have two snack times throughout the day, one in the morning at 10.30 am and one in the afternoon at 2.00 pm. We require parents/carers to provide two healthy snacks in names containers for their children.
