We are registered to receive Tax-free childcare payments giving you a 20% reduction on fees!

We offer 'free' government funded spaces for 3-4 year olds for 15 hours per week. Spaces are funded from the term after your child's 3rd birthday.

Working parents, earning under £100,000 per year, can claim 30 hours of 'free' government funded childcare for your 3-4 year old. Parents need to apply for this funding, provide us with the funding code and reconfirm your funding entitlement every term.

We are also able to provide 'free' spaces for some 2 year olds for 15 hours per week, if you meet certain criteria set out by the government. From April 2024 this will include working parents of 2 year old children.

The government website Childcare Choices has full details of all of the funding criteria and entitlements, as well as information on tax free childcare, which can all be used at Brightside Preschool. We direct you to this website to ensure you are given the correct information for your individual family circumstances. If you require further assistance just let us know and we can look at the information together.
