Fielding Primary School and Nursery

Funding and help with childcare costs

Fielding Nursery has three sessions during the day and each is charged separately to ensure families are able to choose the sessions they require. The Nursery has access to all eligible government funding, however all families will have to pay some fees.

 

The key points for the different types of funding which families at Fielding Nursery may typically be able to access, according to eligibility, are outlined below.
