Within each Nursery session, three hours (Mornings from 08.30 am to 11.30am) will be provided as Early Years Free Entitlement funding to those children who qualify for the Early Years Free Entitlement.

Early Years Entitlement for eligible students

Three and four year olds can claim their 15 funded hours at North Bridge House from the term after their third birthday. New parents must complete a Parent Contract supplied by the local authority in respect of any child for whom the Early Years Free Entitlement is being claimed.

In order to qualify for Early Education funding a child must be attending for a minimum of five morning Nursery sessions each week. Places for any session are not guaranteed, are strictly subject to availability, staffing ratios and are granted on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
