Bright Horizons have produced a useful video which summarises how they allocate funding.
The following chart illustrates how much nursery fees will be reduced by when your free hours have been taken into account (for the University nurseries and Bright Horizons Community nurseries). Please note that a maximum of 6 hours per day is allowed for.
Full time and four days/week nursery places:
30 hours x 38 weeks = 1140 hours
£4.04 x 30 hours (6/day) x 38 weeks / 12 = £383.80
Three days/week nursery places:
18 hours x 50 weeks = 900 hours
£4.04 x 18 hours (6/day) x 50 / 12 = £303.00
Two days/week nursery places:
12 hours x 50 weeks = 600 hours
£4.04 x 12 hours (6/day) x 50 / 12 = £202.00
Please contact any Community Nurseries not listed on this page directly in order to find out how they allocate funding.
