At the age of Two, Three and Four children are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare, referred to as EYEE ‘Early Years Education Entitlement’. Although we are a private day care setting, we can still offer you up to 15 hours of free care. As from September 2017 our nursery is supporting the scheme of 30hours free childcare for working families. Additional hours must be made to HMRC online. Please visit www.gov.uk to apply. Every three months families will need to re-confirm their eligibility on the HMRC website to continue with the funding. If eligibility is not confirmed, parents will lose the additional free hours for their child. You can access the funding within our pre-existing booking pattern, and pay a top up fee for the remainder of care that you need. Funding entitlement is available either termly or can be stretched. There are numerous factors that influence the level of funding you may receive. For more information please speak to Lisa at the nursery whom will give you as much information as possible to help you choose the best option for you and your child.
