Childcare Funding Information

For many of our parents there are a lot of questions around funding available for their child’s place at Smallworld Nursery.

3-5 Year Old Funding 

We have a partnership with Angus Council which enables us to offer funding for children aged 3 and over. This works in conjunction with the Education Department and we deliver the Curriculum for Excellence. 

As per Angus Council’s current arrangement all children are eligible for a funded early learning and childcare place from the first available enrolment date after their third birthday.

You can get up to 1140 hours of funded early learning and childcare. For up-to-date information from Angus Council

Further details are available from the nursery office and there is a separate 3-5 years handbook for children who take up a funded place.

2-3 Year Old Funding 

We are now working alongside Angus Council in delivering “eligible two” funding in our Toddler Room. 

This allows parents who meet the criteria to have their child provided with 1140 hours per annum of funded nursery care. This funding is 9am-3pm Monday-Friday term time. To find out if you are eligible please contact the nursery office staff who will advise you – Contact Us


Our term time follows alongside the Angus School Holidays. You can find the holiday information here – Angus School Holiday Calendar
