Paying fees
If you are not entitled to the free entitlement or you are using this for additional child care, payment must be received by the end of the first week of each half term in advance. If this is not paid you risk losing your child’s place.

Early Years Free Entitlement for 3 year olds
Three year old children are entitled to 15 hours of free early years provision for 38 weeks a year. This can be applied for from the term after your child turns three until your child attends a Reception class.

The first time that we claim for your child’s free entitlement you will be required to complete an Early Years Free Entitlement declaration form and we will need to see your child’s birth certificate as proof of eligibility.

You will then need to complete an EYFE declaration form at the beginning of each term.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have completed the correct forms by the correct date.
