15 Hours Funded Sessions

These are available for:

  • 2 year olds (with a two year code)
  • 3 year olds (from the term after their third birthday)
  • all 4 year old children

This entitlement may be taken flexibly over 5 mornings or 5 afternoons. It can also be taken over 2.5 full days with an extra cost of £5. This is fifteen hours allocated to core learning. Additional sessions can be booked for a charge.

30 Hours Funded Sessions

From 3 years old (the term after their third birthday), parents can apply for a 30 hour funded place made up of 15 hrs universal and 15 hrs extended. The extended hours can be used for any of the sessions and not just the core learning sessions.


Children can bring their own packed lunch into nursery. We offer a school meal for a cost of £2.30.

School meals can be ordered before 9:30am on the same day.

You may be eligible for free school meals if your child attends for a full day. Please see the following link:https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/free-school-meals/
