Free Funding

2 Years Old Funding

Funding is now available for eligible children aged 2-3 and each application is assessed by the Department for Work and Pensions. Eligible families will be contacted by the local family information service with a unique reference code. Once you are in receipt of this code, please contact your nursery for further information. Children who are eligible for 2 year old funding, do not pay any additional service charges which only becomes applicable once claiming 3 & 4 year old funding.

3 and 4 Years Old Funding

All 3 and 4 year old children are entitled to 15 hours per week of free early years education. This funding is available from the term after children turn 3 years old and continues until children start school. 

There is also 30 hours of free early years education available to eligible families. This funding is available to working families in England from the term after children turn 3 years old and continues until children start school. Families need to apply for 30 Hours funding via the government website.

All settings who deliver care all year round (51 weeks or more) are permitted to offer ‘stretched funded hours’ to parents which means we are able to offer up to maximum of 22 hours a week each week of the year over a number of days or sessions a child attends nursery. (This is the equivalent of 30 hours a week term time only and is set by the government).

The government’s policy states that the funding does not cover any snacks, meals, nappies, wipes, additional services or extras that the nursery provides.


Each month parents will receive an invoice via our communication platform Parentmail. This can be paid via card, Paypal or Childcare Vouchers. The invoice will cover the agreed schedule that month plus any additional items or charges.

Invoices are setup in advance of the 1st of each month and must be paid by the 7th of each month.

If you require any support with Invoicing then please get in touch. 

Childcare Vouchers

Hedgehog Nursery accepts all recognised childcare vouchers as way of payment of fees.
