Children 3 and over

Children 3 or over will be entitled to Early Years Education Entitlement funding, beginning from the start of the term after their 3rd birthday (that is, from September, January or April). Please visit Childcare Choices to find out what your options are.

Please note: Birmingham Day Nurseries will aim to offer you a funded space, but unfortunately cannot guarantee availability. Although this is often referred to as ‘free childcare’, you may still be eligible for nursery fees. Speak to the Nursery Manager to discuss exactly how the funding will work for you.

Some children aged 2 are also entitled to Early Years Education Entitlement funding. Visit Childcare Choices to find out more.

Registration fee

Registration costs £50. You’ll also need to pay a £250 deposit to secure your child’s place. Unfortunately this is not refundable if your child does not take up their allocated place – but if your child starts as expected, the deposit will be refunded to you as a deduction from your first month’s bill.

How to Pay

There are two ways you can pay for your childcare.

  • Direct Debit, collected on the 14th of each month
  • University Employees salary sacrifice scheme
