Funding and Support

Nursery Education Funding

Old Stratford Preschool operates the Funding Scheme for 3 and 4 year olds in line with the Early Years at Northamptonshire County Council. Children are currently entitled to funding the term after their 3rd birthday within the dates outlined below:

  • Birthday between 1st January – 31st March – Funding will be given for Summer term onwards
  • Birthday between 1st April – 31st August – Funding will be given for Autumn term onwards
  • Birthday between 1st September – 31st December – Funding will be given for Spring term onwards

Once your child is eligible for funding the Preschool will provide you with the necessary paperwork to fill in & return.

PLEASE NOTE: WITHOUT THIS PAPERWORK CORRECTLY FILLED IN AND ANY NECESSARY ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTATION BEING RETURNED ON TIME, YOUR FUNDING WILL BE FORFEITED.

Funding entitles you to up to 15 hours childcare each week. The funding cannot be used for Breakfast Clubs or Lunch Clubs and as such these will be chargeable.

The Government is currently looking at reviewing the age at which children will be funded. As soon as a decision has been made we will incorporate it into our setting.
