GET IN TOUCH TO FIND OUT MORE!

WHAT DOES 30 HOURS MEAN FOR ME?

Parents with 3 and 4 year old children may now be eligible to claim up to 30 hours per week of free childcare. You, and any partner, must each expect to earn on average at least £120 a week. Parents who are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, unable to work due to disability or caring responsibility could still be eligible.

You can check eligibility and apply through the government’s childcare calculator. Then simply bring your eligibility code and National Insurance number to YMCA South Devon and we’ll do the rest!

Once set up, you will need to update your details in your childcare account every 3 months.

About our Nursery

Our team of qualified, experienced and friendly staff provide professional early years education in high quality indoor and outdoor play environments, including a multi-award winning garden with a giant sandpit and mud kitchen, to stimulate the growth and learning of children 2 to 5 years old. Find out more about our nursery and facilities here.

We theme and plan each week so that activities are varied and relevant. We cover seven areas of learning using the Early Years Foundation Stage to help form our framework and observe and document the children’s development using a mixture of paper based techniques and Tapestry, a secure online system.

The nursery is open from 7.30am until 6pm, Monday to Friday, 51 weeks per year.

On the first Monday of the month we run a free ‘Stay & Play’ session for parents and carers of children age 18 months – 4 years with singing, stories and messy play indoors and in the garden.

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with events, news, offers and the latest information.
