3 to 4 year olds

3 to 4 Year Olds

Our Pre-school Rooms each cater for up to 26 children per day, where we offer Nursery Education for 3 to 4 year-olds in preparation for the transition to school.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and its seven areas of learning in the planning of activities for pre-school children, and firmly believe in learning through play. Specific areas of the rooms and outside are set out to give the children freedom of choice in the activities they do.

Free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds

All three and four year olds in Luton are entitled to up to 15 hours of free early learning and childcare per week. We aim to offer all families with three and four year olds the hours they prefer at a provider of their choice, over a minimum of 38 weeks of the year.

When can my child get a free place?
Your child can get a free place from the term after their third birthday.

30 hour funding for 3 to 4 year olds:

If both parents work more than 16 hours and earn less than £100,000 a year, your child may also be entitled to 30 hours free childcare per week.  Speak to us for further information.

Can I use my free allowance at Teeny Days?
You can take the full 15 or 30 hours when you want and how you want (subject to availability).

  • Spread your entitlement over two to five days per week
  • Pay for extra childcare over and above the free 15 hours, if you need it.
