Free Early Education (FEE) Two, Three and Four year olds

Free Early Education is a core offer of 570 hours per year. It can be taken as 15 hours per week over 38 weeks ( term-time) or 12 hours over 48 weeks (please see the Manager for details), usually the term after their 3rd birthday. Please ask a member of staff for details.

The minimum session length is 2.5 hours and the maximum is 10 hours per day. Places can be taken between the hours of 7.00 am and 7.00 pm. Parents do not have to take the full 15 hours if they feel it is too long for their child.

Greenfields House offers Free Early Education over a minimum of 2 days between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm, in accordance with our session times.

Greenfields offers Free Early Education over a minimum of 2 days between the hours of 8.30am and 3.00pm, in accordance with our session times.

Parents/carers may access as little or as much of the Free Early Education as they wish, space permitting, and may take up the entitlement at a maximum of 2 providers. Free Early Education will be split pro-rata based on your child’s attendance. Parents are to inform the supervisor if this is the case. Please note that under the scheme there is no guaranteed right to a place, the admissions policy will apply.

Additional funding criteria for two year olds
Providers must be in receipt of an ‘Eligibility Confirmed’ email before accepting a child under the terms of the FF2 Scheme. Payment cannot be guaranteed if eligibility has not been confirmed.

30 hours of free childcare for three and four year olds.
Greenfields House offers the 30 hours free childcare. A child qualifies for the extended entitlement if both parents are working (or the sole parent in a lone parent family is working) and each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours (National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage) and less than £100k a year.

Greenfields works in partnership with our sister nursery (Greenfields House) to offer the 30 hours free childcare.

Enrolment fee
An enrolment fee is required for children who do not receive Free Early Education and pay for their sessions. Children who access Free Early Education and do more than the 15hrs or 30hrs (if eligibility for 30 hours free) per week entitlement will be required to pay the enrolment fee.

Payment of fees

Greenfields House
Fees apply all year round for children who do not receive Free Early Education. The nursery is closed during Christmas and New Year and all bank holidays.

Greenfields Nursery
Fees apply term-time only. The nursery is closed all bank holidays, school holidays and most teaching training days.

An invoice will be issued each term (12-14weeks) giving parents the opportunity to pay in 1, 2, 3 or 4 instalments for the term. Any Free Early Education hours will be shown and a total kept for the year. Fees must be paid on the date stated on the invoice unless a prior arrangement has been made. We regret that there will be no reduction if your child is being absent or if you are on holiday.
