Help with funding

The Orchard Nursery offers an intake at three points in the year: September, January and April.


This can be from the term after your child’s third birthday for 15 or 30 funded hours.


All children are eligible for 15 hours a week of free nursery education starting from the term after they turn 3 years of age.


You may be entitled to up to 30 hours of free childcare if your child is 3 to 4 years old.
