30 Hour Funding

We aim to:

  • Provide high quality, full-time education in a safe environment, for children aged 3-4 years

  • Provide suitably qualified and experienced staff

  • Work in partnership with parents/carers

  • Make Valley Nursery Schools 30 Hour Offer an enjoyable place to be

The 30 Hour offer is a non-profit making organisation and offered by the Government and is committed to equal opportunities, both in provision for the children and in its staffing policy.


Eligible Children are entitled to 30 hours per week Government Funded sessions. 

A charge of £15.00 per week will be required on a Monday for the lunch time provision whilst using this entitlement (8.30am - 3.30pm).  Please note that your £15.00 per week is non-refundable and it will still be paid in the event that your child is off Nursery (excluding half-term and bank holidays).

Lunchtime (Packed Lunch Required)  11:30am – 12:30pm £3.00 per day

  • Fees must be paid on a Monday of each week for all 30 Hour provision.

  • You need to provide your child with a packed lunch daily if you are using the lunch time provision. 

  • If you do NOT want lunch time provision for your child you must collect your child at 11.30am and return your child at 12.30pm for the afternoon session. 

  • Children will NOT be able to stay in this provision if you do not provide a valid code, validate it every three months and payment is not received.

  • Late payments may result in losing your lunchtime place.
