    Free 15 hours entitlement for three year olds

    We are registered with Cumbria County Council to offer the governments free early years entitlement for three year olds.

    Children who have their 3rd birthday between these dates will have a free place from the following month:

      • 1 April and 31 August – September
      • 1 September and 31 December – January
      • 1 January and 31 March – April

    The free entitlement is for 15 hours and can be claimed in a variety of ways such as termly, inline with schools or spread throughout the year. Please contact us to discuss the various options available.

    For those parents who wish to combine free entitlement with wrap around care the free entitlement hours used will be delivered completely free at the point of delivery and additional services will be charged in accordance with the present nursery fee policy.

    Children who take up free entitlement within their day care will also be able to stretch out their free entitlement throughout the year.

    Because of the nature of the nursery and the wide availability of other partnership settings that are able to offer the flexibility of free entitlement e.g., local school nurseries, pre school nursery groups etc, to meet the needs of individual families, Kiddlywinks Nursery will allocate places that will meet the needs of parents requiring the services that we specialise and excel in which is day care and wrap around care over 51 weeks of the year.

    To register with Kiddlywinks for free early years entitlement we will need to see a copy of your child’s birth certificate to support the governments auditing systems and our contractual obligation. We will also require you to sign an Agreement Form, known as a Free Entitlements Contract.

    You can use two settings when using the free early years entitlement but this will have to be discussed with those settings to ensure that it is in accordance with the other setting’s admissions policies.

    For more information please go online

    Some families will also be able to access working tax credits in addition, to further support childcare costs. Please contact HM Revenue and Customs for advice .
