Funding & Vouchers


At Happy Stars we are registered with Brent Council to provide all three and four year olds with 15 hours funded support. Brent Council will pay towards your child’s funded 15 hours over 38 weeks of the year (this usually divides into funding for three terms, one of 14 weeks and two of 12 weeks).
