Fees and Funding
Nursery fees are inclusive of breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, snacks and drinks.
For children who only access 2, 3 or 4 year old free funding, parents have the choice of paying an additional fee for our meals or having sessions that do not include mealtimes.
Fees are payable monthly or weekly in advance. Monthly payments must be paid before the 25th of the month.
Payments are accepted by cash, standing order, internet banking or childcare vouchers.
Full fees are charged for sickness and holidays. We offer 2 weeks holiday per year at half price.
A 5% sibling discount is available
Please call or email us for the latest nursery fees.
Free Settling In
I Learn Education offers parents free settling in sessions. These introductory sessions are designed to introduce your child to the nursery gradually and give you the opportunity to discuss your child’s individual needs within the nursery.
We accept most childcare vouchers. If your employer operates a childcare voucher scheme you can save Income Tax and National Insurance. Currently you can claim a maximum of £243.00 per month through this scheme. This amount is deducted from your gross salary by your employer before Income Tax and National Insurance is deducted and used to provide childcare vouchers for the same amount.
Nursery Education Grant
Funding is available to all children aged 3 and 4 years old for 15 hours a week. The nursery will apply for this funding on your behalf at the appropriate time.
You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year)
If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you sign up online to get a code to give to your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.
You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are:
- in work – or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave
- each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wagefor 16 hours a week – this is £125.28 if you’re over 25.
This earnings limit does not apply if you’re self-employed and started your business less than 12 months ago.
You’re not eligible if:
- your child does not usually live with you
- the child is your foster child
- either you or your partner has a taxable incomeover £100,000
- you’re from outside the EEAand your UK residence card says you cannot access public funds.
You can get 30 hours free childcare at the same time as claiming Universal Credit, tax credits, childcare vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare.
Some 2 year olds are also eligible. To see if you are eligible for 2 year old funding please look on www.gov.uk/free-early-education or ring North Lincolnshire Council on 01724 296296
