At Twinkle Totz, we want to ensure that as many families as possible can access our day nursery schools. That is why we proudly offer funded places for local families based in London and Berkshire, including:


  • LEA Funding for 2-Year-Olds

  • Free 15 Hours’ Entitlement for 3- and 4-Year-Olds (Plus Extended Funding of 30 Hours)

  • Free Funded Places for 15 – 30 Hours (Term-Time Only)

Working flexibly to ensure families can access free hours during our operating times throughout the year, we’re here to help. If you would like more information about the free hours, please speak to the manager at your local nursery who can provide information about the availability of spaces and help you decide how best to use these.

How has 30 hours has changed Erik & Florentina's life? 


The 30 hours case study video from the Department for Education (DfE) raises awareness on the benefits that using 30 hours childcare can have for working families. In the video below, Florentina from Brent shares her story of how #30hours has allowed her to increase her work hours while her son Erik, who has special educational needs, received speech and language therapy through his nursery.
