Help with nursery fees

Childcare can be expensive for some, but help is always at hand

At Westerham Day Nursery and Pre-school, we don't want covering the costs of childcare to be something that keeps you awake at night. Thankfully, help is available for families of a variety of incomes and situations. If you would like further information from us, please do get in touch to speak with us and enquire.

Tax credits or universal credit

These are available to individuals on a lower income, and are intended to assist with childcare costs.

Your circumstances and incomes will determine the amount you receive.

Tax-free Childcare

The Tax-Free Childcare Scheme has replaced the Childcare Vouchers Scheme, and takes the form of a 20% contribution towards the cost of childcare.


You can receive up to a maximum of £2000 per year.

Free Entitlement for 2, 3 and 4 year olds

Children aged 3 and 4 years, and eligible 2-year-olds, are entitled to the equivalent of 15 hours’ funding per week for 38 weeks of the year. Eligible 3-year-olds can receive up to 30 hours' funding a week.

As the nursery opens for 51 weeks, we offer funding on a stretched basis. This means you have up to 11 hours or 22 hours per week across the year.
