Term Time Attendance

At our Hove and Brighton nurseries, Young Sussex offers a limited number of term-time only places. The intention is to relieve parents of the obligation to pay for childcare during the main school holidays of Christmas, Easter and Summer.

The term dates are broadly set to match the Brighton and Hove school terms, with the occasional variation. Attendance continues through the half terms, but these sessions can be swapped to a more convenient time. Extra sessions can also be booked during the main holiday periods.

Unlike spread funding for full year attendance, term time funding is at a rate of 15 hours/week over 38 weeks, leaving a number of set days without any funding allowance. The terms dates are listed below along with a list of the non-funded days during the term.

Term time attendance is not available at our Shoreham nursery


Please note that swapping a session from an unfunded date to a funded date will not gain you any additional funding
