Children are eligible for government funded nursery sessions the term after their third birthday. The current entitlement is 15 hours per week. You can split this between different childcare providers. You will be asked before the beginning of each term how many hours per week you would like to claim for your child. If you are unsure whether or not your child is eligible please speak to a member of staff.
When your child qualifies for this funding, you will be notified and supplied with all the relevant paperwork. You will be required to complete a Parent/Carer Declaration and supply proof of date of birth and identity, i.e. birth certificate or passport. The Playgroup will then submit all documentation.
In cases of financial hardship, there may be assistance from the Langley Trust, a village charity dating back to the mid-seventeenth century. Requests for assistance are treated in confidence and can be made to the trustees of the charity, whose names and contact details can be found on public notice boards in the village.
