The Early Years Education (EYE) is a government grant for all 3 and 4 year olds to access early education before they start school. The scheme allows for a maximum of 8 hours funding support on any full day booking, and a maximum of 4 hours funding support on any half day booking.
The government grant is currently for a maximum of 570 hours per year, starting from the term after a child’s 3rd birthday
Funding Option 1: Standard (term time) claim provides 15 hours per week funding support over 38 weeks per year.
Funding Option 2: Stretched claim provides funding support for every week the nursery is open (50 weeks per year).
Both options offer the full 570 hours of universal support.
Please note we do not offer the extended 30 hour scheme.
Towards the end of each term, we will provide parents with the necessary forms to complete enabling us to raise a claim for your child.
