To ensure all children have access to an Early Years provision, from the term after they turn 3, children are entitled to 15 government funded hours per week. We have recently registered for 30 hour extended entitlement for eligible families. www.gov.uk/30-hours-free-childcare Please ask a member of staff or committee for more information.
There is also a 2 Year Old Early Years Education scheme. This is a scheme that allows eligible children to receive free early education from the term after their second birthday. You can visit www.hants.gov.uk/eye or look on the Pre-School notice board, to check eligibility and details of how to claim.
To accommodate this, the Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday sessions are run on a ‘flexible hour’ system. During these days, children may attend just the morning session until 12 noon, or afternoon from 12 to 3.00pm; they may also wish to stay for the lunch club until 1.00p.m, or they can stay for the whole day ending at 3.00p.m. In order for these sessions to run smoothly, we do ask that children are collected promptly at the end of their chosen finishing time.
Children who are not yet eligible for Government funding or who attend over and above the 15 funded hours we charge a fee of £5.75 per hour.
