Funded Childcare and Fees


Affordable Nursery Fees & Childcare Vouchers

What is the government's 'free' childcare offering?

Stepping Stones Montessori are delighted to offer 30 hours funded childcare for all eligible families. If eligible, you will be able to access funded childcare from the beginning of the term following your child’s 3rd birthday. We want to ensure that all families of all attendance types can utilise and access the funding to its full potential! To accommodate this we can offer funding ‘stretched’ over the full year that we are open (51 weeks) as opposed to just the term time only (38 weeks). This allows part-time families to access more of the funded hours than would have previously been available.

We also offer 15 hours funded places for 2 year old children, however the criteria for this is different to the above. To receive the funding, you will need to have a referral from your local children’s centre. For more information, please contact the nursery.

What is 'Tax Free Childcare'?

As a nursery, we also offer Tax Free childcare.  You can still apply for Tax-Free childcare if you get:

  • Child benefit
  • 15 hours free childcare and education for children aged 2 to 4 years old
  • 30 hours free childcare
