All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) a week until they move up into reception or reach compulsory school age. This free entitlement is paid from the term after they turn 3. In order for the nursery to claim this funding the form below must be completed each term and returned to the school office.
In addition to the 15 hour funding, some parents may be eligible to claim the extended entitlement of a further 15 hours. Please go to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk for further details to see if you qualify. Please note that this funding is the responsibility of the parent/carer and must be applied for termly.
As your chosen childcare provider, we claim funding for your child from Essex County Council, who pay the funding directly to us on a termly basis. Therefore each term you will be required to complete and sign a funding form to enable us to make this claim.
Please note that we do not split the 15 hour FEEE with any other provider. However, should you be entitled to the Extended Entitlement, then this can be split with up to a further 2 providers with any 2 being used in any one day.
Additional Learning Sessions
If you would like your child to have additional learning sessions but you are not entitled to the Extended Entitlement then you have the option to pay for the additional learning sessions. We ask that all additional learning sessions are paid in advance of your child staying. If it is to be a regular arrangement then you may secure these additional learning sessions at the beginning of each term. We may also be able to provide ad hoc additional learning sessions and/or lunch club subject to availability.
Morning/Afternoon Sessions £15.00
Lunch Club £ 2.50
