Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE)
The free entitlement for all funded 3 and 4 year olds is for a maximum of 570 hours a year which equates to 15 hours a week over a minimum of 38 weeks a year (term time only). For children aged 3-5 years, starting at the beginning of the school term following their child’s 3rd birthday
The government have introduced 30 hours funding for some families who have children aged 3 and 4. The eligibility start dates are the same for those who are eligible for 3 and 4 year old funding.
Funded early education for two year olds (FEET)
Funded Early Education for Two year olds (FEET) offers eligible families up to 15 hours of funded early education and childcare a week for 38 weeks a year
More details on all the types of funding the government offers and how to apply can be found at https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
You will be asked to sign a parental agreement. You should ONLY claim for the number of hours you know your child will be attending and no more and you MUST state on your Parental Agreement whether your child is attending another setting, and how many funded hours are being claimed. If your child is absent from nursery then the hours will be used to hold your child’s place open, however if the nursery is closed for example an emergency or a training day then the hours will be given back to you at our earliest convenience.
Please be advised that in some circumstances EYEE/FEET hours may need to be altered to ensure staff to child ratios. Notice to any change of hours will be given.
Fees from September 2023
3-4 year olds - £8.00 per hour (this hourly rate will apply from the term after the child turns 3)
