Accessing funded places

As a registered charity and social enterprise, we offer high quality childcare at the most competitive and affordable rates. We do this through the Government’s funded childcare schemes for all 3- and 4‑year‑olds and some eligible 2-year-olds.

LEYF is offering the Government funded hours for working parents at all of our nurseries for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. From September 2024, this will be extended to children from 9 months.

If you need help with fees, a number of options are available. LEYF can occasionally offer short-term funding for nursery places to help parents back to work or following unexpected redundancy.

All our nurseries have close links with the community, which means we can give you information about other local sources of support. Your nursery manager can tell you more.

You can also find out more by visiting the Government’s Childcare Choices website. 

*Please note, this may vary at our workplace nurseries: Bushy Tails and House of Commons.
