Little Acorns Nursery Funding for 3 and 4 year olds

Each child automatically receives 15 funded hours of childcare, the term after they turn 3. This is called Universal funding.
 
Some children may be eligible for 30 hours funded childcare depending on their parents circumstances. To check eligibility go to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. 30 hours funding must be applied for, it is not awarded automatically.
 
If you are eligible. you will receive an 11 digit code which must be passed on to the nursery admin to be verified. Once this has been verified, it is the parents responsibility to reconfirm their eligibility every 3 months with HMRC to make sure their funding doesn't lapse.
 
In all funded cases, parents will be asked to fill in a parent declaration form to state how many hours funding they will be be claiming from our setting.
