From January 2019 we are able to offer either 15 or 30 hours free funded places at Headlands Nursery, subject to eligibility and availability. Our morning sessions run from 9.00am to 12.00pm, our afternoon sessions from 12.00pm to 3.00pm and our full day sessions from 9.00am to 3.00pm.

All 3 year olds are entitled to 15 free funded hours which we can offer in either 5 morning sessions or 5 afternoon sessions per week. Subject to places being available parents can pay for additional sessions (ie, access the 15 free funded hours 5 mornings per week and pay for up to 5 additional afternoon sessions per week). Our additional sessions cost £10 per 3 hour session and these have to be paid for monthly in advance. Unfortunately attendance patterns cannot be changed mid-term, including any sessions that are paid for. We may be able to accommodate requests to change your child’s attendance pattern for the beginning of the following term, depending on availability.

Eligibility for 30 free funded hours is determined by certain criteria. You would need to provide a valid code at the time of admission to guarantee the 30 free funded hours place. You can check your eligibility and apply via the following website:
