Extended Entitlement - 30 Hours of Funded Childcare will be Available at LEYF Nurseries from September 2017

LEYF Nurseries are offering the Extended Entitlement (30 Hours of Funded Childcare) at the majority of our Nurseries from September 2017

As a parent you may be aware that the Government has extended the funded childcare entitlement for 3-4 year olds from 15 to 30 hours per week.

From 1st September, 2017 LEYF will be offering the extended entitlement in all nurseries with the exception of our Abbots Manor nursery and Burges Park.

If eligible, you will be able to access the 30 funded hours from the term following your child’s third birthday (see our guide to funding for more information).

Visit the government’s Childcare Choices website for more details, and to check your eligibility. You can also use this page to apply for other types of nursery funding, including tax free childcare.

If you have any questions, please speak to your LEYF nursery manager or call our customer services team on 020 7834 8679.
