We know for many parents how hard it can be financially when bringing up children - so we have tried our best to cut you a little bit of slack with our education grant.
As a setting that is open all year round, we deliver 12 hours of free entitlement over the whole year as an education grant.
• 47.5 weeks of funding
• 4 weeks of no charge holiday (bank holidays automatically booked out)
• Half a week of no charge - between Christmas & New Year
(no funding is allocated in this period)
• 3 parcels of 4 hours (but two parcels cannot be added together to make
a day - government guidelines).
• 2 parcels of 6 hours split as 3 hours in the morning and 3 in the afternoon
Our Bristol nursery no longer delivers term time only places - if you require this provision please contact our linked setting Speedwell Nursery School & Children’s Centre on

If your child is accessing nursery free entitlement on a day that falls as a bank holiday, it will automatically be booked out as part of your holiday entitlement (to ensure your free entitlement is not used on a day when we are closed). It might be possible to swap your session instead of using holiday entitlement, dependant on availability.
