How do I claim my funding?
The Gateway Nursery is self-funded but you may use the 15 hours of government funding here. This works out as 5 sessions. This is automatically applied for by Nursery.
You will need to complete an EY1 form, which you will find in your application pack, and it will need to be signed at the beginning of each term.
If you are using funded sessions at another setting eg daycare, you must decide which setting is to claim how many sessions and whether there is any shortfall that needs to be paid to one or the other.
Most children receive funding from the beginning of the term after their third birthday, but in some circumstances it is available from two.
We run morning and afternoon sessions from Monday to Friday and offer an additional lunchtime to enable your child to remain all day. We seek to be flexible and are able to take children for as many or as few sessions as you need.
Please discuss your requirements with us and let us help you find the best balance for your child and you. Staff are always available to help with any queries you may have.
