Early Years Funding
All children aged 3-4 years are entitled to 15 hours free childcare per week, the term after they turn 3. This is applied for by us and we will give you the relevant paperwork when required.
Any hours your child attends over the 15 free hours, will be charged at our normal rate.
2 Year Old Funding
Some 2-year-olds can get free childcare if you live in England and get one of the following benefits:
- Income Support
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
- Universal Credit - if you and your partner are on a low income from work (this usually means a combined income of less than £15,400 a year after tax)
- tax credits and you have an annual income of under £16,190 before tax
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
