FREE FUNDED HOURS
From the term after their third birthday, every three and four year old child is entitled to receive up to 15 hours per week, for 38 weeks, free childcare at a setting of their parents choosing. At Tigers Day Nurseries we offer these hours flexibly so parents can access them as a term time only place in line with West Berks and Wiltshire school term dates, or as an all year around place for the 51 weeks of the year we are open.
For a term time only place the hours are taken over 38 weeks, giving parents free 15 hours of childcare per week. For an all year around place over 51 weeks, this equates to 10 hours per week free childcare (one full day from 8.00 am until 6.00pm, or 2 ams or 2 pms per week) and parents just pay for their child’s meals. Any wrap around hours, sessions and additional services on top of those offered as free hours are calculated annually and the total divided by an equal monthly payment.
Come and speak to us about sessions to suit you and your child’s needs!
