15 hours free childcare provision (3-4 year old funding)
All 3-4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week free childcare provision.
We would prefer that you use your 15 hours funding for 5 morning sessions at Bridgewater School Nursery. However, appreciating that everyone’s needs are different, we offer flexibility in the way that you use your hours with us. Working with Rialize, we can offer you a full day’s nursery provision (subject to availability).
For example, if you would prefer to use your 15 hours for full school days, you will be asked to book a minimum of 3 mornings (with Bridgewater School Nursery) and a minimum of 3 afternoons (with Rialize). This will result in 19.5 hours of childcare (8.30am-3pm = 6.5 hours per day x 3 days) which means you will have to pay for 3 lunch clubs, £3.50 per club and 1 x 3-hour Rialize afternoon session, £17 per session.
