Full-time places in Nursery are offered on the following criteria (as set by the government): 

  • Each parent (or the sole parent in a single parent family) will need to earn, on average, the equivalent of 16 hours on the national minimum wage per week, and no more than £100,000 per year.
  • A family with an annual household income of £199,998 would be eligible if each parent earns just under £100,000.
  • Self-employed parents and parents on zero-hours contracts will be eligible if they meet the average earnings threshold.
  • If further full-time places are available, these may be offered to parents who wish to pay the fee for the additional hours (Option 4).
