Just had a phone call from sammy's nursery to offer him a place for 4 afternoons a week starting in sept. Each session is only 2 hours. I thought that when a child turn 3 they are allowed 15 hours a week

Yes you should get 15 hours, I'd call them back and ask them about it.

They are allowed 15 hr, however it depends on how subscribed the nursery is. Some children don't take their full 15 hrs, leaving some time free and so the nursery is allowed to fill that time. If you get your child in early, you get your choice, if your later, the first on the list get what they've requested and then the start allocating places accordingly. I'm not saying this is whats happened and you should ring to check, but this seems most likely. I was asked what hours I wanted and was told that as I got my daughter name down late then she may not get 15hrs.
Entitlement is 15 hrs, if the nursery has the space. Hope this makes sense.

I was told that Sammy couldn't have his full 15 hours due to the extra funding for him, which i don't think is fair
