When can my Child start free Nursery Education?

Three year olds will be able to start a free nursery place in the September, January or April following their third birthday.

Your child’s birthday must be before:

31 March will be eligible for free nursery education from the Summer Term (April)

31 August will be eligible for free nursery education from the Autumn Term (September)

31 December will be eligible for free nursery education from the Spring term (January)

These are the cut off dates. If your child’s birthday is for example on the 1st or 2nd January and the term  starts on the 5th January I am afraid their funding will not start until the Summer Term after Easter because they have passed the cut off date of 31st December.

If your child qualifies for the two year funding, this can be used should your child be offered a Rising Three Place for the term in which they turn three.
