Childcare Funding

Every three and four year old is entitled to 15 hours of free learning per week. This learning can take place in nurseries, playgroups, preschool or at childminders for 38 weeks of the year.

 

Children qualify for a free place at different times depending upon their birthday and how this fits in with the school term system. The table below is taken from the Government website and shows when your child will become eligible for their free early learning places.

 

We will contact you when it is time for your child to receive funding and ask you to sign the relevant forms.

  • If your child is born between 1 April and 31 August they are eligible for a free place from 1 September following their third birthday until statutory school age.
  • If your child is born between 1 September and 31 December they are eligible for a free place from 1 January following their third birthday until statutory school age.
  • If your child is born between 1 January and 31 March they are eligible for a free place from 1 April following their third birthday until statutory school age.
