It may be that your child is eligible for free early education and childcare under the FEEE scheme. If you have a child aged 2-3 years old, you can check if they’re eligible by contacting your local council on 0300 123 5033.
A bit more about the FEEE Scheme below…
The term after your child turns three, you are entitled to 15 hours of funded sessions.
In addition to the universal offer of 15 hours, most working parents of three and four year olds will be eligible for an additional 15 hours per week- giving them a total of 30 hours free childcare.
Parents should visit the Childcare Choices website to find out if they are eligible. You will need your unique reference code.
15 hours example
8am-1pm/1pm-6pm (5 hours) x 3 days = 15 hours
9am-12pm/1pm-4pm (3 hours) x 5 days = 15 hours
9am-3pm (6 hours) x 2 days + 9am-12 (3 hours) = 15 hours
30 hours example
9am – 3pm (6 hours) x 5 days = 30 hours
9am – 4.30pm (7.5 hours) x 4 days = 30 hours
8am-6pm (10 hours) x 3 days = 30 hours
You may put sessions together if you wish to and the following ‘top-up’ sessions will be available:
Breakfast Club (8am-9am): £4.50
Hot lunch: £3.00
High tea: £2.00
Hourly rate: £6.50
