3 to 4 Year Olds 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, if you are eligible please call in and have a chat with us for further information.

We offer FREE places in each of the school terms
