Nursery Fees and Funding
All children aged between 3 and 4 years old are eligible for the universal entitlement of funded early education (FEE) that will provide 15 hours of nursery provision at Lime Tree Primary School during term time. This is referred to as “15 Hours Free Childcare”.
Children become eligible to receive the funding from the start of the period following their third birthday.
These periods are set by the Department for Education rather than following school term dates:
