The Nursery has obtained funding for all children living in Hampshire from the full term following their third birthday. This funds your child for up to 15 hours or 30 hours per week for 37 weeks (the Robin Nursery academic year).  Early years education funding for two year olds is also available to qualifying families. 

(Please note: an hourly rate of £4.26 applies to funded children who do not claim all of their funding with us).



If you would like your child to have breakfast and/or lunch at nursery please provide them with appropriate food for those meals. 


(Please note: we have a no nuts and no kiwi policy in place due to allergies).

The nursery will provide free water, milk and morning and afternoon snacks every day for your child.
