Early Education Funding
 

3 to 5 YEAR OLDS

You can start claiming free childcare after your child turns 3. The date you can claim will depend on when their birthday is.

  • Birthdays from 1st January to 31st March - you can claim from the 1st April or the start of the Summer term.
  • Birthdays from 1st April to 31st August - you can claim from the 1st September or the start of the Autumn term.
  • Birthdays from 1st September to 31st December - you can claim from the 1st January or the start of the Spring term.

The funding covers 15 hours per week for 38 weeks per year (570 hours in total). As we are open for 39 weeks per year there will be 1 week which, if you wish your child to carry on attending for that week, will be charged at the full session rate (please refer to our fees) as the funding will not cover the extra week.

The London Borough of Hounslow administers the scheme and sets the rates, which may vary from term to term. We claim the funding directly from Hounslow Council on your behalf. Further information can be found on the LB Hounslow website.

PUPIL PREMIUM FOR 3 to 5 YEAR OLDS

Childcare Providers can now get extra funding called the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP). We want to use this funding to add to what we currently offer and all our children will benefit as a result.

If you get any of these benefits we may be able to get extra funding:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax credit

We may also be able to get the extra funding if your child:

  • has been looked after by the local authority for at least one day
  • has been adopted from care
  • has left care through special guardianship
  • is subject to a child arrangement order

2 YEAR OLDS

If you have a two year old child they may be able to get free early learning if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Universal Credit - for parents of children born on or after 1st January 2016 and with an annual net earned income equivalent to and not exceeding £15,400
  • Universal Credit - for parents of children born before 1st January 2016 are not subject to a net income threshold
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act
  • Working tax credit during the four-week period immediately after employment ceases or after the parent/carer starts to work less than 16 hours per week

If you meet the qualifying criteria above, your child will become eligible from the term after their second birthday for up to 15 hours of free childcare each week:

You are also able to receive free childcare if your child:

  • has a current statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care plan
  • receives Disability Living Allowance
