Fees & Funding

Tax Free Childcare

You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).

If you’ve already registered, you can sign in to your childcare account.

If you get Tax-Free Childcare, you’ll set up an online childcare account for your child. For every £8 you pay into this account, the government will pay in £2 to use to pay your provider.

You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as 30 hours free childcare if you’re eligible for both.

Policies & Procedures

First, its location is convenient for parents who are university students, staff and visitors. Second, its stuff are very friendly and capable. Our baby is the first time to go to nursery. He likes the nursery after one or two weeks. When I pick up him in the evening, I can see how happy he is. It must be lovely day for him. Thank the wonderful staff working here.
