Fees and funding
All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 free hours of childcare per year. Some 3 to 4-year-olds are eligible for 30 hours' free childcare a week.
The 15 and 30 hours offer is available only through Batford Nursery School. Please see the Batford Nursery Admissions sections for more detail about funded provision, which is term-time only. In the case of 30 hours childcare, it is the responsibility of the parent to re-confirm their eligibility for 30 hour funding each term - usual fees will apply to sessions if the code is not provided.
Some 2 year olds are entitled to free early learning and childcare; the eligibility starts the school term after the child’s second birthday. Batford Day Care has a commitment to these eligible children and there are eight places in each of the morning and afternoon sessions reserved for funded places.

Full day (2-year old), two days per week = £87.16 x 2 x 51 divided by 12 = £740.86 monthly charge
