Funding is available for all eligible three and four year olds, direct from Swindon Borough Council. This allocation will automatically be claimed on behalf of each eligible child for the sessions they attend at King William Playgroup.
Current funding level is 15 hours for all children, though some may be eligible for 30 hours depending on various criteria. Funding can be used on Morning and Afternoon sessions with any hours above your funding allocation being billed as top up (£12 per 3 hour session subject to availability).
Example: (Monday all day, Tuesday all day. Friday morning equates to 5 x 3 hour sessions and is 15 hours)
- Morning Session (9 AM – 12 midday)
- Afternoon Session (12 midday – 3 PM)
- All Day Session (9 AM – 3PM)
If you want your child to start prior to the funding being setup – we can offer sessions charged at £10 per 3 hour session.
We can offer extra hours as part of the 30 Hour Government Scheme, if you are interested in applying please speak to Nicola who will be able to advise you on what hours are available at that time.

Children are eligible to start on the qualifying term AFTER their third birthday. The qualifying terms start 1st September (Autumn Term), 1st January (Spring Term) and 1st April (Summer Term).
See Stay Up To Date for specific dates, and holidays.
Snacks and drinks are provided mid-morning and mid-afternoon and we ask for 50p per session towards this cost which is invoiced at the start of each term. If your child has any food allergies, please advise Nicola or TeresaPre-Visit
We recommend you bring your child for some visits prior to their start date in order to familiarise themselves with the setting and staff. This is also a great opportunity to meet your child’s keyworker and to complete the required paperwork. A parent/carer must remain with them during this visit.
Please contact Nicola Hobdell on 527678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a suitable date.
