Funding for 3 year olds at silks farm nursery

Help with childcare costs for all families


Funding for 2 year olds

Together with the Northamptonshire County Council, we are able to provide Government funded places for two year olds, depending on the child's and family's circumstances. These places are offered through a referral system and children are generally referred through their health visitor or similar.  

Please contact us for more details. 


Funding for 3 to 4 year olds

All three and four year olds are eligible for a part-time early education place. Applicable from the term following your child's 3rd birthday, they are entitled to at least 15 hours per week, for 38 weeks of the year.


Please contact us for more details.

My son loves coming to Busy Bees Montessori Nursery! It's very welcoming and friendly, he's come on leaps and bounds and has gained a lot of confidence, he tells me everyday how much he enjoys it.


I would 100% recommend Busy Bees to any parent, it is fantastic. Vicki Haywood
