Nursery Education Funding


Did you know that children are entitled to 15 hours of FREE preschool or nursery sessions per week from the term after they turn 3 years?  This is available for all children, regardless of any benefits you may receive, how many hours you work or your income.


More information on this is available on Herefordshire Council's website:


The Government funding for the free 15 hours of childcare begins from the term after a child's 3rd birthday.  Please refer to the following dates:


If your child is born between these dates: They are eligible for funding from:
1st April to 31st August The Autumn Term
1st September to 31st December The Spring Term
1st January to 31st March The Summer Term


We have many families who choose to use their 15 hours of Nursery Education Funding at Busy Bees. Children are able to take their free hours through a variety of flexible options.  For example, you can have 5 morning sessions a week, 5 afternoon sessions, a mixture of both or 2 1/2 days.   Please be aware that funded sessions can only be taken during our Preschool hours which are 9am - 3pm Monday to Friday, term time only.
