We are pleased to offer England’s new 30 hour funded childcare entitlement for 3-5 year olds at Holyrood Nurseries, and will continue to offer the 15 hour council funded childcare scheme where preferred.

Applying for 30 Hour Funded Childcare

In order to access 30 hours funded childcare, you will need to confirm your eligibility and collect a unique code through HMRC. Eligibility for funded childcare is income-based, and there are set cut-off dates for applying for funded childcare throughout the year.
You will then need to provide our nursery team with your unique code number. We then have to validate this in order for us to arrange to register your child’s place

Acceptance of funded places within our nursery is dependent on our availability.


Supplementary Charges

Bookings made under the 30 hour funded contract are subject to supplementary charges, as per Department of Education Guidelines. These charges are designed to cover costs associated with hot lunches, healthy snacks and extracurricular activities over and above the basic funded provision.

How Funding Applies to Your Nursery Fees

Following consultation with our current families, we have decided to ‘stretch’ the 30 hour funding entitlement from term-time only cover to year-round cover full. This equates to 22 hours of funded childcare per week which can be assigned to varied session patterns. If you desire a term-time only place, you may wish to consider 15 hour funding as an alternative. Please contact us to discuss further.

Fee Payments

Our preferred method of payment is via direct debit. These forms are available to download from our individual websites. Click here to pay online. Other acceptable methods are childcare vouchers, cheque, credit card or standing order.  Unfortunately we do not accept cash.


Childcare Vouchers and Tax Credits

Child Care Vouchers allow you to pay nursery fees tax free from your salary. This is a salary sacrifice system of up to £55 per week per parent. The money comes directly off your salary before deductions, giving you savings on tax and National Insurance contributions.

You will then receive a voucher or e-voucher that is given to the nursery and is deducted from your bill. A number of childcare voucher providers offer this service to companies, and many now have online systems. Please ask your employer if this is a benefit they offer. We are registered with a number of voucher providers and are happy to sign with other agencies as used by your employer.

To speak to anyone about payments of your nursery fees or if you have an issue paying, please contact us.

If you receive tax credits the amount you are eligible for may be affected by using childcare vouchers. You can check whether you would be better off taking childcare vouchers through this free online calculator.

Many families do not take advantage of the financial help that is available to them for the cost of childcare. Families on middle as well as low incomes may be entitled to financial support such as Child Tax Credit or Working Tax Credit.

This extra help – called ‘the childcare element of working tax credits’ – is available to individuals on lower incomes to help with the cost of childcare. The amount received is dependent on your circumstances and income, but could cover up to 80% of your childcare costs here at Holyrood Nursery.

To be eligible, lone parents must work 16 hours or more per week, for couples, both partners must work 16 hours or more or one partner must work 16 hours or more per week if the other is unable to work for specific reasons.

To find out more and see if you are eligible for assistance, please visit www.hmrc.gov.uk or call the Tax Credit helpline on 0845 300 3900.
