Admission - Nursery

Funded hours can be taken in any format to suit, such as mornings, afternoons or full day sessions. We are also able to offer places in line with the extended 30 funded hours.


Our sessions are charged at £5.50 per hour. Sessions are bookable as follows:

8:45am - 11:45am £16.50

11:45am - 14:45pm £16.50

Universal 15 Funded Hours


All 3 to 4 year olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. This is a maximum of 15 hours per standard week. The free early education and childcare must be with an approved childcare provider, and stops when your child starts in reception class.


You can claim funding from the long term after your child's 3rd birthday. 


You must complete an Annual Parent Declaration Form in order to claim your funding. It is your responsibility to complete the Parent Declaration Form and if the number of funded hours you wish to claim changes, you must amend your form, re-sign it and log the date that the change happened. We are happy to assist you with the completion of the form. It is the childcare providers responsibility to keep a record of this paperwork, as we are subject to audit through Lincolnshire County Council.

30 Funded Hours Nursery Provision


If you wish to access the additional 15 funded hours (30 total) Nursery provision at St. Andrew's, you will need to apply for an eligibility code via the Childcare Choices government website.

Once you receive your eligibility code you will need to complete the '30 Hours Funding Form' below, along side your standard 'Parent Declaration Form', and return it to the school office so we can confirm your eligibility.

For more information on Government funding for nursery age children, and guidance on applying for 30 funded hours please see these useful documents below...
