Free Early Education for Two year olds (FEET)
FEET funding is available from the term after your child’s second birthday and provides 15 hours per week of early years provision for 38 weeks a year.
You can find out if your child can get FEET funding by checking the financial and other criteria by contacting the Children’s Centre or by clicking the link:
Early Education for Three and Four year olds
All three and four year olds in England are entitled to 570 hours of free early education and childcare per year. This is usually offered as 15 hours a week for up to 38 weeks per year, and is a universal entitlement. It can be claimed through an Ofsted registered childcare provider the term after your child’s third birthday.
Working families who meet the eligibility criteria can also claim an additional 15 hours of funded childcare per week. Eligible children will therefore be able to receive up to 1140 hours of funded childcare per year.
