Help with childcare costs for all families


Funding for 2 year olds

Together with the Leicestershire County Council, we are able to provide Government funded places for two year olds, depending on the child's and family's circumstances. These places are offered through a referral system and children are generally referred through their health visitor or similar.  

Please contact us for more details. 


Funding for 3 to 4 year olds

All three and four year olds are eligible for a part-time early education place. Applicable from the term following your child's 3rd birthday, they are entitled to at least 15 hours per week, for 38 weeks of the year.


Please contact us for more details. 


Paying for Childcare

Whether you are working full time, have a part-time job or are self-employed, there may be some financial help available for you to help pay towards your childcare costs.


More information on 'paying for childcare' can be found here.  





My son attends Whitwick Day Nursery and has been here since June 2013. The ladies in the room helped him to settle really quickly and made my return to work much easier knowing he was in safe and caring hands.


He is currently about to change rooms and this has been made to be as smooth as possible, having increasingly longer trials to ease the transition.


He loves the variety of foods he is offered and cleans his plate every time. He enjoys getting messy and I know he has been given every opportunity to do this when I pick him up!
