Early Education Funding for three and four year olds

Table of Contents

If you have a child, who is three-four years old and attending an Early Years setting, or childminder registered within the Royal Borough, you are entitled to claim Early Education Funding. You are entitled to a maximum of 15 hours of free childcare per week, during term-time, amounting to a maximum 570 hours per year.

You become eligible for this at the start of the school term following your child’s 3rd birthday, and the entitlement lasts up until the term of your child’s 5th birthday, as long as they continue to attend Early Years Provision, and entry to school Reception has been deferred.
