Free early education for 3 and 4 year olds

Parents are able to claim free early education at St Hilda’s Nursery the term after their child turns 3 years. We offer 15 hours free funding, spread over 5 days for 3 hours per day.

We offer two options:

  • Our current and preferred nursery session is 8.15am-12.00pm.  The cost for the extra part of the session is £10 per day, invoiced in advance. This can be paid for using childcare vouchers.
  • Alternatively your child may just attend for the 15 funded hours from 8.30am-11.30am. Any changes to this should be made on a termly basis.

If your child’s birthday is between….
