Children become eligible for a free place from the term after their 3rd birthday. This entitlement continues until the child is of the age to start school.
All children have an entitlement of 1140 hours per year in a local authority ELC setting.
This entitlement means an early learning and childcare place of 6 hours a day over 38 weeks in a local ELC setting, partnership nursery provider or with a childminder.
Certain ELC settings, childminders and partner providers can offer you your funded hours spread over the full year. You need to contact them directly to find out the session options they offer.
There are no catchment areas for nursery places. Placements are allocated dependent on availability. Every effort will be made to accommodate your first choice request.
To apply please refer to our enrolment arrangements for eligible 3-5 year olds page.
