15 hours of Universal Free Early Education for 3 and 4 year olds
All 3 year olds become entitled to 15 hours of Free Early Education from the Government from the beginning of the term after their third birthday and as a rule, this is when children start in either Session A or B at Little Ducklings – subject to there being a space available.
Session A: Monday 9am – 3pm, Tuesday 9am – 3pm & Wednesday 8.40 – 11.40am
Session B: Wednesday 12.30 – 3.30pm, Thursday 9am – 3pm & Friday 9am – 3pm
We will also consider a child starting in the nursery immediately after they turn 3 but only if there is a space and if parents are willing to pay 15 hours for each week, (£97.50 per week paid in advance), remaining in the term.
15 hours FEET funding for 2 year olds
We have a small number of 15 hour FEET funded places for 2 year olds starting in the term after their second birthday. If you think you might be eligible for FEET funding please follow the link below:-
15 hours paying places for 2 year olds
In the event that the 2 year old places are not filled by FEET funded children, we also offer a small number of 15 hour paid places for 2 year olds at a charge of £97.50 per week to be paid monthly in advance.
