Understanding additional services

Government funding is intended to deliver free, high quality, flexible childcare. Funded hours is not intended to cover the costs of additional services.  Parents can therefore expect to pay for additional services offered by the childcare provider alongside their funded entitlement.  This is a private matter between the provider (Early Learners Nurseries) and the parent. All additional services are chargeable. Additional services are added as a product fee per month. We only accept the payment of fees, monthly, in advance. Parents are required to provide notice in line with our terms & conditions.​

Additional Services: 


Meals (lunch, dinner or snacks, food activities, baking),

Consumables, (clothing / uniform or sundries - wipes, creams, ), 


Additional time (wrap around hours & extra days/ sessions),


Enhanced Activities (trips & outings, extra curricular programmes, special events).




Tax Free


How to use Tax Free Childcare?


You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).

If you get Tax-Free Childcare, you’ll set up an online childcare account for your child. For every £8 you pay into this account, the government will pay in £2 to use to pay your provider.

You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as 15 or 30 hours free childcare if you’re eligible for both.


Free Early Education

for 2, 3 & 4 year old's!




What is Free Early Education (F.E.E)?


All 3 and 4-year-olds and some 2-year olds in England are currently entitled to up to 15 hours a week free childcare for 38 weeks of the year (during school term-times).  All children in England get 570 free hours per year.  We spread this free entitlement over 12 months (instead of 38 weeks), to help spread the savings throughout the year.


You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take). The ‘30 hours free childcare’ scheme is great news for eligible families, who could claim up to double the amount of free childcare they are currently entitled to.  This could take your free childcare entitlement from 570 hours a year up to 1,140 hours a year.  If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you can simply sign up online to get a code to give to us your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.  For more information please click on the 15hr or 30hr options.
