From the start of the term after a child’s 3rd birthday, every child is eligible for Early Years Education Entitlement funding. Formerly the Nursery Education Grant, this funding can be used in 2 ways to cover the cost or help with the cost of childcare.
You receive 15 hours per week, term time only, 38 weeks per year equating to 570 hours. This can be used to cover 3 mornings, 2 school days or 1 full day and a half-day term time only or alternatively used to offset the fees if you need all year round care. We aim to be as flexible as we can to fit in around work commitments.
There is some 2 year old funding available, please look here https://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/childrenandfamilies/childcare/free-childcare/2-years/
We are open 52 weeks a year except weekends and Bank holidays and you may spread your free entitlement for this whole period lowering your fees or you may choose to access 15 hours per week term time only for free.
We do need proof of your child’s identity, a passport or birth certificate which we will copy for you to validate the claim.
Spaces for the term time only spaces can be very popular, are limited and are subject to change and it is advisable to book your space in advance
