Free part-time education is available to all three and four-year-old children in Lancashire. Your child is entitled to a maximum of 15 hours of free childcare per week. If your child attends another provider and you wish to use part or all your entitlement elsewhere, sessions at St. Andrew’s Nursery will be charged at £5.00 per hour. Payments are due at the beginning of each week, or can be made in advance (half-termly, termly).


St. Andrew’s Nursery Group will be offering the 30 hours’ free childcare entitlement to eligible parents from September 2017. The 30 hours’ free childcare is an extension of the current free hours and provides an additional 15 hours of free childcare for children where parents are eligible. If a parent is eligible for the additional 15 hours’ free childcare they will receive an eligibility code from HMRC via the on-line system. The code will be given to the chosen childcare provider to book a place; parents will be expected to reconfirm their eligibility every three months.


We also provide free early education and childcare for eligible two-year-old children, to find out if you qualify for 15 hours of free childcare please call the Family Information Service Team on 0800 195 0137 or visit their website at Lancashire.gov.uk/family and complete their online checker. If your child is two years old and you wish to pay for a nursery place, we charge £6.00 per hour and payments are due at the beginning of the week.


As the Nursery group is non-profit making and staff costs are funded totally from LEA funding or fees we are, unfortunately, not able to refund for non-attendance due to absence, illness or family holidays.
