The Government is now funding some 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds in nursery education for 15 hours per week and some children for 30 hours per week depending on eligibility.
The current funding per term for 3 and 4 year old grants is £1149.50 per term.
If you are eligible for 30 hour funding, then this is doubled to £2299 per term.
Your child is eligible for this grant after the term they turn 3 years old. So if your child is 3 on the 5th January, you will only receive the grant the following summer term.
For us to be able to claim this grant on your behalf, we do need you to complete the H & F Parent Declaration form with a copy of your child’s birth certificate. All grants are refund-ed off your monthly bill.
• 30 hours funding: £574.75 off your monthly fees
• 15 hours funding: £287.37 off your monthly fees
As we are open all year round, the grant is stretched over 50 weeks of the year. Please ensure that you give this information to your Nursery Manager before the start of the school term.

Babies need time spent on their tummies it helps them to develop their back and neck muscles needed for future movement. Babies who are laid on their backs all day do not get a chance to develop these crucial muscles in the same way. Regular tummy time works to increase babies' movement skills and confidence needed for crawling and also helps to develop their coordination and balance and babies that engage in regular time on their front each day are generally able to roll, crawl, sit, stand and walk earlier than babies that do not.
I feel that the nursery has been extremely supportive of my son's development and his areas of weakness, working together to achieve the same goal.
The staff are very friendly, helpful and I'm sure all the children past and present will never forget them. My daughter has a particularly good relationship with many of the staff members from across the board and always comes home with stories about all the fun stuff she got up to in the day. The girls are very good role models for her and I absolutely love them and all too pieces. They not only care for the children but I can see their genuine interest in the children's well being is at their core. This makes me feel at ease dropping her off as I know she will be treated equally and fairly at all times. My daughter has a very specific diet and when requested, the staff were happy to facilitate her dietary needs which I found to be amazing as not every establishment would be so accommodating
Both my Daughters aged 18 months and 3 1/2 have settled really well in the nursery thanks to the loving and caring staff. I always found everyone to be very friendly and welcoming. I know my daughters are well looked after and kept busy with lots of activities. My 3 year old particularly enjoys ballet, forest school and soft play. She has really thrived here and learnt to count to 20 and recognises a few letters. Very happy with the nursery overall and would highly recommend it.
Extremely happy with our time at Little People. They have looked after both our daughter and son from 12 months - 3.5 years old.
Caring, professional staff.
Well structured and a good array of activities. Happy children developing well.
