The 30 Free Hours

How does the 30 Free Hours work?

We use ‘stretching’ calculation method. The government provides funding for 30 free hours for 38 weeks (school year), which is a total of 1140 hours. At Maisie Poppins we are open for 48 weeks and so we ‘stretch’ these free 1140 hours, into the Maisie Poppins year for all eligible 3+ year olds.

How is it calculated?

1140 hours / 48 weeks / 5 days = 4.75 discounted hours per day.
The 3-year-old+ rate is the same daily rate as the 1–3 year olds, with 4.75 hours daily paid for by the government scheme.

The 15 Free Hours

How does the 15 Free Hours work?

We use ‘stretching’ calculation method. The government provides funding for 15 free hours for 38 weeks (one school year), which is a total of 570 hours. At the Maisie Poppins Nursery we are open for 48 weeks and so we ‘stretch’ these free 570 hours, into the Maisie Poppins year for all 3-year-olds+.

How is it calculated?

570 hours / 48 weeks / 5 days = 2.4 discounted hours per day.
The 3-year-old+ rate is the same daily rate as the 1–3 year olds, with 2.4 hours daily paid for by the government scheme.

Additional days for current clients

For children who already attend two days or more, additional days can be requested when space is available, by arrangement on an ad-hoc basis. The daily rate is £90.00 we will need x 3 working days notice of your adhoc day request in order to ensure staffing is in ratio and your child’s meals are ordered with the kitchen.
