NEG Funding

Ojal Montessori School offers places to children aged 3/4 eligible for childcare provision under both the 15 hours a week or 30 hours a week Nursery Education Grant (NEG), as well as the 2 year old funding scheme. We also accept childcare vouchers.

You can check your eligibility for 15 hour / 30 hours a week childcare schemes  online by visiting:

Alternatively, you can contact the Ealing Family Information service on 020 8825 5588 and children@ealing.gov.uk

Please get in touch with our team soon, as we offer spaces on a rolling basis, and cannot guarantee a place will be available later on in the year. We would be able to complete the registration process online.

We will deduct the NEG grant from the fees; there is an additional Montessori fee to be paid which incorporates snacks and fruit as well.

30 Hours / Tax Free Childcare

The Government has recently introduced new ways to help parents with childcare costs. The 30 Hour Childcare Programme is a programme which provides children with 30 hours of government funded education per week. This is available to working families (or working single parents), for children aged 3 and 4. 

Further information is available on:
