We have yet to find any other settings in the local area who are as flexible with government funding as we are.
- Funding can be used over 38 weeks during term time or spread over 52 weeks
- We do not place any restrictions on the minimum or maximum number of funded hours which can be used per day or per week*
- Funded hours can be amended during the term, provided the final deadline for claiming from the council has not passed and we are able to accommodate the revised hours.
* there are some government limitations to how funding can be used which we must comply with - please ask for more details.
Government Funded Childcare
All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 universal funded hours per week during term time starting the term after their third birthday. You may be entitled to an additional 15 hours per week as part of the 30 hours extended offering, in which case you are welcome to use those extended hours here at Alfresco.
Some two year olds are eligible for 15 hours per week funded childcare
Visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to find out whether you can claim two year old funding or the extended 30 hours for 3 and 4 year olds.
