30 hours Early Education Funding

From the term after your child turns three, they can have a free 15 hour early years education place at our Nursery School. This is called the Early Education Funding (EEF) and it is paid for by the government. Some families are eligible for an additional 15 hours under the new government initiative 30 hours childcare. Fairfield Nursery School currently offers 10 places for 30 hours.

We offer FREE places in each of the school terms

Autumn (September) Spring (January) Summer (April)

To find out if you are eligible and to apply for the free 30 hour funding take a look at Childcare and Family Support (external link) on Lancashire County Councils website.

To apply for a 30 hour Nursery School place at Fairfield please return a completed application form, a completed 30 hour form (include your 11 digit eligibility code and the national insurance number of the parent who applied for the funding) along with your child's original birth certificate to reception.

We are happy to accept early applications at our popular "Outstanding Nursery School".

However 30 hour places will only be offered once we have received and confirmed your 11 digit eligibility number
