Fees & Funding

We work in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council  for the provision of Council-funded early learning and childcare (EL&C) places.

Please click here for further information.


Applications for Funding

We will issue you with a funding application form in January of the year your child becomes eligible for funding, in line with Aberdeenshire Council's guidelines.

You should complete Part A of the application form and return it to us along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate, child benefit payment book or passport as evidence of your child’s date of birth.  We will then complete Part B. Personal information on this form will be used only for the purpose of establishing eligibility for EL&C funding and all documents used to evidence date of birth will be destroyed once your application has been processed.

You may be entitled to claim Working Tax Credit to cover childcare costs but you cannot claim this Tax Credit for the pre-school education element if you are awarded EL&C funding by the Council.

For the purposes of processing your personal information Aberdeenshire Council is the Data Controller.  You have a right to obtain details of the personal information that Aberdeenshire Council holds about you. Such requests, for which there is a charge, should be made to the Early Years Team at Woodhill House, Aberdeen, Tel: 01224 664026.
