Funding

30 Hour Funded Places

3 & 4 Year Old

Some families are eligible to receive 30 hours funding, eligibility is mainly based on working hours and income. For more information, to check your eligibility and to apply please click the link below.

All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours’ funding through the government’s Nursery Education Grant. Funding becomes available at the start of the term following your child’s third birthday. This will mean a reduction in your payments. The pre-school takes care of the administration for the grant and a form will be produced for you to sign at 3 times a year.
If you have any questions regarding the fees or how the funding works, please do not hesitate to speak to the Administrator or Pre-School Manager.

2 Year Olds

Some two year olds are also entitled to funding through the Nursery Education Grant, which Wiltshire Council have named “Better2gether Funding”. This funding is not universal and has a selection criteria.

As with the funding for three and four year olds, this will mean a reduction in your payments. Please speak to the Pre-School Manager or the Administrator for further assistance.

Tax Free Childcare

You can get up to £500 every 3 months (£2000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. 

If you get Tax-Free Childcare, the Government will pay £2.00 for every £8.00 you pay your childcare provider. This is paid via an online childcare account that you set up for your child.

You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as the 30-hour free childcare if you are eligible for both.

You will be unable to get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as claiming Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers. 

Help from Employers

Employers may offer help with childcare costs through offering Childcare Voucher schemes. These can give a huge saving on your tax and National Insurance contributions. If both parents claim, a couple can save up to around £1,000 a year. To make this saving, your employer needs to pay part of your salary to you in childcare vouchers, which are then redeemable against your childcare costs. As the vouchers are deducted from your salary before tax and National Insurance, you therefore save money. We work in partnership with several childcare voucher providers and it is very easy to set up and administer this benefit. Talk to your employer about the support that is available. If they are not currently registered with a voucher company, there are several voucher companies that we recommend.
