Hi just after a bit of advice as im confused. My daughter is entitled to a free 15 hr place at nursery in September when she turns 2. I want to keep her in the nursery shes in at the mo, she only does 6 hours. i only really want her to do 9 or 12 hours, but do you have to use the full 15?

No, you can use as much as you wish. Even a split over 2 nurseries if you like.

It's fifteen hours times 38 weeks iirc - so if you are using nursery all year round then it's more like 12 hours a week.

Nurseries work this out differently and I really don't understand how and they may have restrictions on how funded hours can be used, so it's worth talking to them now to see what their policy is.
