There is some funding for 2 year olds (15 hours) if they meet the IWCC criteria, which parents/carers will need to apply for. Families entitled will receive a letter confirming this which they need to bring to Berry Hill Childcare Ltd.

These hours can be split over any sessions and can be added to if required at the current charge rate. (See session chart on opposite page).
