Elmstead Nursery


Children have an entitlement to fifteen hours free Nursery education per week from the term after their third birthday. If a funded child attends more than 15 hours a week they are charged at an hourly rate of £6.00 for 2 year olds or £5.50 for 3/4 year olds as are non funded children.


30 Hour Funding Entitlement

Working parents can claim up to 30 hours of funding. If your child is three and you think you may be eligible, you can make your application by going to and following the links.


Younger children aged 2½ to 3 years are welcome to attend all sessions and lunchtimes if space and staffing allow.  The cost of a session is £15.00 (lunchtime session £9.00).


We charge 25p per morning and afternoon session for snack. There is also an additional charge of £1.00 for Cooking Club.


2 Year Old Funding


We are registered to offer funded places for 2½ year olds. Up to 15 hours per week of free early education entitlement is available for children whose families are on low income or receiving certain benefits.
