All 3 and 4-year-olds and some 2-year olds in England are currently entitled to up to 15 hours a week free childcare for 38 weeks of the year (during school term-times). All children in England get 570 free hours per year. We spread this free entitlement over 12 months (instead of 38 weeks), to help spread the savings throughout the year.
You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take). The ‘30 hours free childcare’ scheme is great news for eligible families, who could claim up to double the amount of free childcare they are currently entitled to. This could take your free childcare entitlement from 570 hours a year up to 1,140 hours a year. If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you can simply sign up online to get a code to give to us your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts. For more information please click on the 15hr or 30hr options.
Future plans are in place to create a out-of-school club classroom to provide parents with breakfast, after-school and holiday club services.
Project is planned to commence August 2018 and complete by December 2018.
Early Learners Nursery Runcorn opened in September 2016. We operate close to the old-town centre of Runcorn on Lowlands Road by Runcorn train station. We are open Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm.
Our setting is a purpose built, which caters for the ages from birth to five years old. In January 2019 we are excited to be opening our new School Club service providing breakfast and after-school services, delivering and collecting children from local schools. Our setting provides a homely family atmosphere, where children has the opportunity to learn, play and make new friends. We offer a happy and secure open-plan educational environment. We strive to give every child the best start in life. In August 2018 we achieved a 'Good' rating by Ofsted which we are very proud of.
The nursery has an occupancy for up to 57 children at anyone time, which includes: up to: 7 place Baby Room, 26 place Toddler Room and a 24 place Pre-School classroom. Children are separated into the different classrooms depending on the age and ability. Our nursery benefits from an experienced, caring and enthusiastic team. We will also have a car-park, large garden, outside classroom and pram storage facility.
