3 and 4 Year Olds

Birmingham Local Authority funds a free part time place of 15 hours for every child from the beginning of the term following their third birthday. You can also pay for your child to top-up these hours to a full time place at a cost of £6 per hour.

When registering please bring your child's birth certificate/passport and a proof of address for the parent/carer-recent utility bill or bank statement.
We will contact you either by letter, email or telephone when a place becomes available. 

If we are over subscribed, school places will be given based on each child's specific levels of need. 

Some working parents of 3 and 4 year olds may be entitled to 30 hours of free childcare, rather than the 15 hours. The 30 hours free childcare is only for 30 weeks of the school year, not 48 weeks. This is equivalent to school term times. You may be able to spread the free childcare out over further weeks, but this will mean that you will get fewer than 30 hours of free childcare each week.
