30-Hour Funding - When to apply
When applying for the 30-Hour funded sessions - Parents should use the online HMRC eligibility checking system at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to obtain an eligibility code.
You can apply from when your child is 2 years and 36 weeks old.

We run regular tours for parents to view our Early Years provision. This will give you an opportunity to meet staff, see the provision in action and ask any questions you may have. To book a tour, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01634 332551. If there is a lot of interest over a short period of time, we may offer group tours.
