Caterpillas Under 5's Opening Times and Fees

All settings registered with Ofsted are eligible to accept Universal Entitlement funding. This is a universal benefit for every child from the term after its third birthday.

Every child is entitled to up to 15 hours free early years education for up to 38 weeks of the year. Parents do not have to apply for this grant, the pre-school or nursery that your child is registered with will ensure that s/he receives their entitlement. In households where both parents work 16 hours or more the family can apply for the extended entitlement which gives parents up to 30 hours free childcare for 3 & 4 year olds

Two Year Olds Funding

Following reports emphasising the importance of early intervention, the Government introduced an initiative to fund places for vulnerable two year olds. This enabled those with an identified need to access up to 15 hours of free entitlement. TNB Early Years and Play strongly supports this initiative. Help and support in applying for Two Year Funding can be sought via the health visitor, or local children's centre.


Caterpillas is committed to ensuring that all children with SEND are given the same opportunities as everyone else. Click here to see Wiltshire Council's Local Offer
