Nursery Fees



To find out whether you are eligible for help towards your nursery fees, please visit:





Early Years Entitlement:

Somerset County Council will fund part-time Early Years Entitlement places for three and four year olds starting from the funding period after the child’s third birthday. This is called the Universal Entitlement. Two year olds that meet the eligibility criteria can also access funding. Please visit HERE to find out more about 2 year old funding. The early years entitlement gives your child a maximum of 570 hour each year. This will start the funding period after your child’s third birthday and will last for 3 funding periods (equivalent to one year).The maximum entitlement that can be claimed is 15 hours per week. The next entitlement year (starting the funding period after your child’s fourth birthday), your child will receive another automatic allocation of 570 hours, which will also last for 3 funding periods. This is all processed by the nursery, and you will be asked to fill in the necessary forms on a termly or yearly basis to claim your entitlement.


30 Hours of Funded Childcare:

From September 2017, some working parents will be entitled to an extra 15 hours per week early education and childcare for their 3 and 4 year old child on top of the current offer. This is called the extended entitlement. For more information on the eligibility criteria, please see Somerset County Council’s 30 hours funded childcare page, HERE. If you would like more information about the early years entitlement, then please contact the Somerset County Council Entitlements Team on 01823 357039 or email eyfunding@somerset.gov.uk


Tax-Free Childcare:

You can claim up to £500 every 3 months (£2000 per year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. If you get Tax-Free Childcare, the government will pay £2 for every £8 you pay your childcare provider via an online account. Please visit HERE for more information.
