30 Hours Funded Childcare
At St. Thomas' we offer both part time (15 hours) and full time (30 hours) nursery places.
From September 2022 our Nursery hours are changing and will be as follows:
Part time nursery hours are Monday to Friday 8:45am - 11:45am .
Full time nursery hours are Monday to Friday 8:45am – 3:15pm.
All 3 and 4 year old children are currently entitled to up to 15 hours of free early education per week – term time only.
This could increase to up to 30 hours of free childcare per week if you are eligible.
For further information and to find out how you check if you are eligible, please go to 30 hours free childcare – Stockport Council.
If you are not eligible to receive the full 30 hours of funded childcare but would like your child to attend full time you can opt to pay a fee of £50 per week (£10 per session) for a full time place.
Alternatively you may already be using additional childcare and are happy with this, then you can continue with this arrangement and just access the 15 hours at our school.
