3 & 4 Year Old Funding 

2 year old Funding

Free childcare for two year olds !

 

Most childcare providers charge families for the care they provide. However some two year olds are eligible to receive 570 hours of free childcare.

 

Is my two year old eligible for free childcare?

If your family already receives certain benefits and tax credits you may be able to get this free childcare. The funding is not open to every child.

If you meet the criteria and have been awarded the funding, you will receive a letter from Hereford Council. This letter will tell you when the funding starts. The funding will last until your child receives the three and four-year-old funding.

 

Funding

We can fund up to 15 hours of childcare and education per week for 38 weeks a year. You usually have to take these hours over three days each week. This funding starts at the beginning of the school term following your child's second birthday.

Places are limited, so you will have to complete an application form and then if eligable you can then decide the fairest way to use the funding.

 

When does my child's funding start?

 

If your Child's Birthday falls between      Term funding starts

1 April - 31 August       - -                                   September

1 September - 31 December  - -                          January

1 January - 31 March - -                                         April
 

 

More details about free childcare and the rules around free childcare entitlement can be confusing and we understand you may have questions about how the funding works.

 

To see if your child is eligible for 2 year old funding please copy the link below into your search engine and follow process

The term after a child is 3 and up until a child starts school, can have 15 hours of nursery education funded hours at Bright Sparks. 

 

This funding can also be shared with one other setting if required.

 

Therefore  :If your child is Born between
                    1 April and 31 August
                    They are eligible for a free place from:
1 September following their third birthday or the beginning of the Autumn school term

                    If your child is born between:
                    1 September and 31 December
                    They are eligible for a free place from:
1 January following their third birthday or the beginning of the Spring school term

                    If your child is born between:
                     1 January and 31 March
                    They are eligible for a free place from:
1 April following their third birthday or the beginning of the Summer school term

 

All early years settings may have very different titles such as playgroup, nursery,nursery school, pre-school etc but we all have very similar aims and objectives and follow the EYFS but the most important being that Every Child Matters.
