DS is a nursery where they take the 15 hour funding and reduce day care fees.

Will this be when he turns 3 or the term after he turns 3?

It's the term after, which must be rubbish if your dc turns three just after the easter holidays!

It's being three by the 3x qualifying dates (roughly termly, but always 1 April, regardless of when Easter falls, so your DC has actually turned 3 before the end of the spring term but still not qualify until September)

Oh I see that now, so if easter is at its latest ie end April you can get funding for the week before the end of term? Technically? Mine have nov and june birthdays so easy to work out.
