The World Outside offers funded places up to 30 hours per week for children aged 3 and 4 years old.
This is available in the term following the child’s 3rd birthday.
Funding is available for 38 weeks of the year only, to help spread the cost the World Outside will pro rota over the 51 weeks we are open.
Fees will be charged monthly in advance. Any additional hours taken during the month will be added to the following month's invoice.
It is recommended that your child attends for at least two sessions a week, as this will make it easy for them to settle in, gain confidence as they make friends and become familiar with staff and the routine, though this is not a mandatory requirement.
Funded hours can be shared with another setting.
