About Us

The Government provides a free entitlement for all three and four year old children to attend an early years provider, starting the term after the child's 3rd birthday. This is called the Early Years Entitlement. The entitlement is designed to be flexible so you can choose where you want your child to attend and what hours they will attend (subject to availability).

All providers can now offer funding for up to 15 hours early years provision each week. A small number may offer less than this if they are not able to open for a full 15 hours per week. The entitlement is for regular attendance agreed between the parent and provider.

Your chosen provider will give you the necessary forms to claim the funding and they are responsible for sending these forms back to the Local Authority. The funding for your child's hours is then paid directly to the provider.

All children become eligible for this funding at the start of the term after their 3rd birthday. Terms are split into the traditional 3 academic periods September-December, January-March and April-August.
