All 3 to 5 year olds are entitled to a maximum of 15 hours of free early years education a week for 38 weeks of the year, which is equivalent to the number of weeks that schools are open. Ark Day Nursery offer these sessions flexibly and they can be used on their own so that no fees are payable or combined with full day care sessions. Parents can apply for the funding through Ark Day Nursery from the term after their child’s 3rd birthday and the funding will continue until statutory school age.
