Early Years funding

  • 2 YEAR-OLD FUNDING (FOR ELIGIBLE CHILDREN AGED 2): some children aged 2 are eligible for funded childcare. We offer this funding on a “stretched” basis which gives up to 11 funded hours per week for 50 weeks of the year. For information on eligibility, please ask for details or see the websites listed below.
  • UNIVERSAL FUNDING FOR CHILDREN AGED 3-4: all children aged 3-4 are eligible to receive Early Years funding. We offer this funding on “stretched” basis which gives up to 11 funded hours per week for 50 weeks per year.
  • EXTENDED FUNDING FOR ELIGIBLE CHILDREN AGED 3-4 (for working parents): eligible working families with children aged 3-4 can apply for extended funding (sometimes known as the “30 hours funding”). We offer this funding on “stretched” basis which gives up to 22 funded hours per week for 50 weeks per year. It is the responsibility of parents to apply for this funding and please note that parents need to reconfirm their eligibility throughout the year (council requirement).
  • Please be aware the stretched funding from the government is only for 50 weeks per year and doesn’t include one week at Christmas and the last week of August. Fees will be applicable for the August week.
  • ADDITIONAL HOURS: all funded children can book additional sessions / hours. These will be charged at our standard rates.
  • SESSION AVAILABILITY: We try to be as flexible as possible with our sessions but, due to demand, it is not usually possible to book funded places on a “mornings only” basis. All sessions are subject to availability and there may be a waiting list for popular sessions.
  • FUNDING START DATE: please note that Early Years funding starts the school term after the child’s 2nd or 3rd birthday and does not therefore apply immediately after the child’s birthday.
  • MINIUMUM SESSION LENGTH: our session options are shown above. Our minimum session is 4 hours and we cannot register children for shorter sessions. This means for example, that if you receive 11hours of funding per week and you wish to book 3 sessions per week (12 hours in total), your funding will cover 11 hours and you will be charged the normal rate for 1 hour.
  • Please note that due to demand, it is not usually possible to book mornings only.
