Benefits of 30 Hours Funded


Eligible families can access the 30 funded hours from the term following the child’s 3rd birthday. Benefits of preschool attendance include enhanced social skills development and exposure to diverse learning opportunities through play, preparing children for the transition to formal education. The expansion in the number of attended days can contribute significantly to a child’s readiness for school in various aspects.

Eligibility Requirements:


Parents (and partners where applicable) must seek free childcare to enable them to work and should earn or expect to earn the equivalent of 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage over the next three months.

Parents must earn or expect to earn the equivalent of 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage over the coming three months. Specific income criteria apply based on age.

Ineligibility if parents or their partners expect to earn £100,000 or more.

Children must be either 3 or 4 years old, with applications possible in the term prior to the child’s 3rd birthday.

The offer is for working families in England, and non-EEA national parents must have recourse to public funds for eligibility.

I am so pleased with my choice of nursery- my son has been at Smart Kids Day nursery since he was 9months old (now 13 months). He has settled so well with the help of the brilliant staff. The staff and management are very attentive, they all are genuinely interested in my sons development and I trust their judgement wholly. The staff seem to really get on with each other and enjoy their jobs, and the kids benefit hugely from the fun relaxed atmosphere.

My son has been attending Smart Kids for a month. I am so pleased with how he has settled into the baby room with amazing support from Grace. The entire team has made my son and I feel so welcome here. Dad and I have noticed positive changes in our sons sleep pattern and see how excited he is to go to nursery- he literally jumps out of my arms when greeted by staff (I’m not sure whether to be offended 🤣). We are really happy with the services being provided by such a lovely team. Because it is out first child we were very nervous parents, thank you for making this transition so smooth and easing our minds.

My son has been very happy since he started here, he adores the staff and always waves at the manager when we walk by the nursery on his days off. In the past 10 months there has been some exceptional changes, as a parent I have been kept up to date via the newsletter emails and parents board and appreciate all the hard work and commitment from the staff regarding my sons developement. The new team is amazing and I can’t thank them enough.
