At The Little Shipmates Family, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to be part of an enriching nursery experience. No matter what your situation, we can support you in finding information about – or applying for – financial assistance with childcare costs. Please feel free to contact our knowledgeable team to discuss your options, or ask about anything you may need.
Nursery place funding options
Do you attend university or college? There is a lot of valuable help available through schemes such as Care2Learn, Learning Support Fund (LSF) and Student Finance. These initiatives will help cover the cost of your childcare while you pursue your educational goals.
This scheme is now being widened, and offers an increasing number of children access to quality childcare from the age of two. It varies from area to area and is managed by your local authority, but our team is always on hand to help you find out if you are eligible. This funding scheme leads into the three-year-old funding that is available to all.
