Funded places

You may claim all or part of this entitlement with Preschool 345, we will give you a form to complete, so that we can claim the funding for your child’s place. This will be paid directly to Preschool by Nottinghamshire County Council.

Some three and four year old children may qualify for 30 hours Nursery Funding: 

  • For working families in England
  • With 3 and 4-year-old children
  • 30 hours of free childcare or early education for 38 weeks
  • A total of 1,140 hours per year, that you can use flexibly with one or more childcare provider

Two year olds may qualify for a free early years place if their home address is in Nottinghamshire and they are either classes as a ‘looked after child’ or if you receive certain benefits.
