    Can anyone help

    I'm in my second year applying for my childcare grant and in my class there seems to be a difference of opinion on what is claimed.

    Last year I only claimed for term time so the week I started my course to the week I finished but not including any of the weeks for half terms, so I think it was around 39 weeks.

    Someone else in my class claimed for 52 weeks! so the whole year

    and another claimed from the week she started to the week she ended but didn't take off any of the half term dates, just the summer holidays, so she claimed for around 46 weeks.

    Does anyone know which is correct.

    My nursery is a private nursery so i can't take them out during half term as they only get 2 weeks holiday a year and with our nursery fees at £188 a week all the half terms I've had to pay for has meant we've eaten beans on toast for the week lol.

    Any help will be much appreciated

    Hi there.

    The forms will include the dates we will fund you for within them.

    We issue funding for the whole year, so 52 weeks.

    When you're in your final year we will only fund you for the duration of that course year only which is normally around 30 weeks but can differ.

    Thanks.
