Early Years Childcare in Dore & Totley

Do you offer Funded Early Learning?

From the beginning of the term after your child is 3yrs old you can claim the governments Funded Early Learning (FEL)& Extended Funded Entitlement (EFE) for your child’s nursery care.

Abbeydale Cottage Nursery is offering these funded hours throughout the full academic year rather than through term time only, and hence you can claim up to 22.5hrs p/w x51 weeks as opposed to the government advertised 30hrs p/w x38 weeks.

You will be able to use the funding on ANY HOUR you attend, up to the maximum of 22.5hrs p/w. These funded hours will have an additional charge of £3 p/h or £4p/h for a meal hour. This charge is for us to be able to continue offering the same level of care and education to all children and to cover additional costs for resources/activities/consumables and outings.

If you wish to attend for longer than the funded allowance of 22.5 hrs, extra hours can be added either side of a session and charged at the non-funded hourly rate.

If children are claiming funding they will no longer be given an annual holiday allowance, nor will sibling discount apply.
