Children are entitled to Free Early Education (FEE) in the term after the one in which they turn three years of age. We offer eligible children up to 15 hours of FEE per week, 38 weeks per year completely free of charge. Sessions that make up the free entitlement at Squirrels Pre-School are as follows:
Any time attended that is not covered by the free entitlement above will incur a charge of £6.00 per hour calculated on a pro rata basis. It is possible for a child to stay for a full-day by attending a morning session and an afternoon session on the same day. The 10 minutes between the morning and afternoon session (12:00 to 12:10) is outside of our free entitlement offering and costs £1.00.
If a child attends more than one setting, the funding is shared between the two providers.
For children not yet eligible for funding, our fees are based on a rate of £4.90 per hour.
Early Years Pupil Premium
Some 2-year-olds may be eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) and entitled to a funded pre-school place. Some 3 and 4 year olds may also attract EYPP. Eligibility is based on the family income, allowances and tax credits received. Please speak to us if you believe you are entitled to any extra funding and we will request the local authority to check your eligibility.
