Information for Parents

Admissions  

Here at Kingsway, we offer both 15 & 30 hour funded sessions for 3- and 4-year-olds, as well as funded 2-year-old places and fee-paying places. We recommend that you check out Childcare Choices (https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk) to find out if you qualify for a funded session. We accept childcare vouchers and Tax-free childcare.
