As an accredited childminder, I am able to obtain Government funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds to provide early education in place of a preschool, nursery or playgroup. However, you can split the free entitlement between two providers if you want.
What this means for you
The term after your child turns 3, you will be entitled to “free entitlement” of 30 hours a week (term-time) if you keep your child with me for their early education.
|If your child is born between||They are eligible for a free place from|
|1st April and 31st August||1st September following their third birthday or the beginning of the autumn* school term|
|1st September and 31st December||1st January following their third birthday or the beginning of the spring* school term|
|1st January and 31st March||1st April following their third birthday or the beginning of the summer* school term|
