Nursery Funding (Early Years Entitlement) is available for children from the term after their third birthday. The funding is paid directly to the setting subject to the provision of a birth certificate, registration form and thereafter each term a signed parent declaration form. A maximum of 15 hours per week funding is available and this may be split between registered providers if required. 

The Government offers a 30 hour funded week however Cherrytrees is unable to offer these additional funded hours due to availability restrictions in the Hall. We will continue to offer 15 hours a week to a maximum of 570 hours in a year.  

Parents may be able to access extra hours at another setting or childminder. 

If this is the case please note that the first 15 hours are known as UNIVERSAL hours and the extra 15 hours are known as EXTENDED hours. 

Early Years Pupil Premium and Two year old funding is available for those who are eligible.

The current Single Funding Formula is £4.22 per hour for the academic year 2020-2021. Parents are advised to read the Setting Fees Policy regarding additional charges. 

FEES:  2021 - 2022 fees are charged at £5.50 per hour, £4.50 for second sibling or twin attending at the same time. Fees will rise in January 2022 to £6ph
