Some three year olds are eligible for 30 hours funding from the term after their third birthday.

The 30 hours code needs to be re-checked by the parents every 3 months. How we offer the funding at Shirley Street Day Nursery: We offer all funding for 2 year olds, 3 year olds (both 15 hours and 30 hours) and allow parents to use these for their desired hours with no “top up costs”. This means if you just attend for your funded hours and bring in a packed lunch you will not have anything charged too you.

The funding is 570 hours per year for the Universal 15 hours per week and 2 year funding. For 30 hours it is 1140 hours per year. We offer these on stretched funding (51 weeks per year) or term time only places (38 weeks per year.) Term time only – 15 or 30 hours per week to be used between 8-6 Mon – Fri. All year round spaces – 11.17 or 22.5 hours per week all year round (51 weeks) to be used between 8-6 Mon – Fri. Anything on top of these hours will be charged at our hourly rate of £6 per hour.

Heading 5

Since Georgia and team took over the nursery it’s has gone from strength to strength. The overhaul of the nursery’s decoration has made it feel not only incredibly attractive but also very clean, new, neat and appealing. There are a fantastic range of toys and activities for the children and the outside area is utilised to its absolute maximum. Georgia and her team are friendly, professional, caring, personable people with whom I not only feel comfortable to leave my child with, but actively glad to know he’s there in their care.

Lovely staff and a lovely setting!

My youngest started going to Shirley Street 3 weeks ago. He’s just under 2, and hadn’t really been left much before so we were anxious about how he’d be but everyone here has been great! From giving us a call just to let me know that he’s happy after a tearful drop off, to the lovely tapestry updates so I can see what he’s been up to! Everyone there has made his first experience of childcare a very happy one!


Lovely staff and a lovely setting!
