Two Year Old and Early Years Funding

 

Two Year Old Funding

From September 2013, the government started funding 15 hours a week, for 38 weeks of the year, free nursery education for two year olds who meet the Free School Meals criteria, from the term after their 2nd birthday.

If you are eligible you should receive an entitlement voucher in the post, however if you feel that you may be eligible but have not seen a voucher you will need to either visit your local children’s centre who will then check to see if you are eligible by entering your National Insurance number, parent’s date of birth and surname, or you may provide this information to us and we can check for you. If you meet the criteria you will be issued a reference number which we will use to claim your funding.

You will need to provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate and proof of address.

We have several different sessions available term time and all year round.


Early Years Funding

All children are entitled to Early Years Funding from Croydon Council from the term after their 3rd birthday. 

A child turns 3 between January and March entitled to funding from April.

A child turns 3 between April and August entitled to funding from September.

A child turns 3 between September and December entitled to funding from January.

The government will fund up to 15 hours a week, for 38 weeks of the year free nursery education which is paid directly to the nursery. Your child has to attend on two separate days a week in order to claim the full 15 hours.

We offer a stretched Early Years Funding option for children that attend the nursery all year round. The entitlement is stretched over 51 weeks of the year and is equivalent to 11 hours of free nursery education all year round. Your child may attend for just their 15 hours a week free early years funding (term time only) if you wish.

In order for the nursery to claim this funding you will need to provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate and complete a declaration stating where you are claiming the free entitlement.

Fees for two year old funded or early years funded children whom attend all year (funding amount already deducted) fees are payable 51 weeks of the year:

These fees are based on the current level of early years funding and should the government withdraw the level of funding that we receive – we withhold the right to adjust fees accordingly.
