For children that claim Free Early Learning (FEL) and Extended Funded Learning (EFE) from the term after their 3rd birthday, fee paying mothers/fathers/carers will be invoiced for the hours per month that the FEL and EFE does not cover at Osborne House Community Nursery’s hourly rate. Every monthly invoice will show hours that are chargeable during funded weeks and chargeable hours for non-funded weeks. The box below details how an invoice would look for a child attending for 30hrs per week (3 days) and claiming both 15hrs Free Early Learning and 15hrs Extended Funded Entitlement.
