You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are:
• in work – or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave

Early Years Pupil Premium

Some children may also be eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium (eligibility criteria must be met).

The Early Years Pupil Premium provides additional 56 pence per hour for an eligible child. We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the early year’s education that we provide for your child. This could include for example additional training for our staff on early language, investing in partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise or supporting our staff in working on specialised areas such as speech and language.
