Funded Nursery Places

All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours a week of funded early years education for 38 weeks of the year. 

Some working parents and carers of three and four year olds in Derby, may be eligible for up to a further 15 hours funded childcare, in addition to the existing funded 15 hours early education entitlement, if they meet certain criteria. This is called the Extended Entitlement. You can apply for funding when your child is 2 years and 36 weeks old.

To remain eligible for your 30 hours of free childcare you will need to confirm your code with HMRC each term. Please see the information on the childcare choices website which tells you how to ensure you continue to receive your funding.
