The early learning entitlement is often referred to as ‘NEF’ or ‘EYC’. Newnham Nursery operates within this scheme which entitles eligible two to four year olds to ‘free education’ for up to 15 or 30 hours per week up to the maximum of 36 weeks for the academic year.

The nursery applies for and collects funding on your behalf. If you are entitled to 15 hour funding there is nothing additional you need to do. If you are entitled to 2 year old funding or 30 hour funding, you must obtain a letter of acknowledgment with a ‘Unique Reference Code’ from the Family and Childcare Information Services department. ( We cannot apply or collect your funding without this number.


There are no fees to pay if your child is eligible for funding. For those not eligible for funding, nursery fees are chargeable at GBP 7.50 per hour.
