We are able to offer places for parents/carers wishing to use their funding entitlement as well as non-funded places (or a combination of both).
- Universal offer: All children aged 3 & 4 years are eligible for a minimum of 15 hours of funded childcare per week from the term after their 3rd birthday.
- Extended offer: An additional 15 hours per week for 3 & 4 year olds of working families, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria.
- Funded 2s: Some children are eligible at 2 years, from the term following their 2nd birthday, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria. Please note with effect from April 2024 up to 15 hours will be available for eligible working families in England with a 2-year-old.
Information, including an on-line eligibility checker, can be found here: childcarechoices.gov.uk If you wish to book either Funded 2 or Extended offer sessions please check your eligibility and have your eligibility code ready for us.
The charges shown above in the ‘Fees’ section do not apply if you are ONLY accessing your funded entitlement with Stretton Pre-School. However, if a funded child also attends additional non-funded hours then the Registration Fee will still apply.
Please be aware that we are bound by the Government and Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) rules regarding changing the number of hours you can claim during a term and changes to your claim.
Whilst we always try to accommodate your requests for changes to sessions it is of course subject to capacity and availability in your child’s room. We have upper limits on numbers to ensure we do not exceed the relevant child to adult ratio.
