Free entitlement

Playplus participates in the 30 hour extended funding offering  for 3 & 4 year old children with qualifying working parents. This is offered on a “stretched” basis, where fewer hours per week but are cover 50 weeks of the year instead of 38. 

Non-qualifying parents may are eligible for the core  15 hours per week funding , running over 38 term weeks and offered as 3 x 5 hour sessions per week.

Some 2 year olds may also qualify for funding depending on parental circumstances. Parents who feel they may be eligible are advised to check this with the local authority or ask the nursery for further information.

For details of all funded hours offerings please contact the nursery.

  • Funding can be split across nurseries, pre-schools and State nurseries (max. of 2 providers).
  • PlayPlus will arrange all necessary paperwork, with parents required to supply documentation confirming their child’s date of birth, and in the case of the 30 hour offering parents will be required to provide the necessary ID from HMRC to demonstrate eligibility.
  • Parents will be invoiced for their fees in the usual manner, less the free hours per session. Additional hours are billed accordingly.
