FundIng - Free Early Years places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds

We provide and are able to offer a fully flexible entitlement of 15 hours per week, 38 weeks of the year. This is often taken as a 3 hour morning or afternoon session, five days per week but can also be put together as a whole day. Eligibility for government funding for 3 and 4 year olds is available for all children, starting the term after a child turns 3 years old. Eligibility for 2 year funding is dependent upon a set criteria. Please visit Childrens Service Directory for more information about 2 year funding.

30 Hours Free Childcare

• For working families in England with 3 and 4-year-old children

• An extra 15 hours a week of free childcare

You and your partner must earn or expect to earn the equivalent to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage. This equates to £120 a week for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week for each parent aged between 21 and 25 years old. You will not be entitled to the 30 hours free childcare if you, or your partner, expect to earn £100,000 or more per year.

Tax-Free Childcare

• For working families, including self-employed

• With children under 12 (or under 17 for disabled children)

If you’re a working parent with children under 12 (or under 17 for disabled children) you can open an online account to pay for registered childcare. The government will top-up the money you pay into the account. For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2. You can receive up to £2,000 per child, or £4,000 if disabled.

You and your partner must earn, or expect to earn, the equivalent to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage. This equates to £120 a week for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week for each parent aged between 21 and 25 years old. You will not be eligible for Tax-Free Childcare if you or your partner expect to earn £100,000 or more per year.

You cannot use Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as Childcare Vouchers, Universal Credit or Tax Credits. You can use it with the 15 and 30 hours schemes.

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) Funding

From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders and other childcare providers are able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care. The Early Years Pupil Premium provides an extra 53 pence per hour for three and four year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who were formally in local authority care.

Oasis can use the extra funding to improve the quality of the early years’ education that we provide for your child. At present, with the support of parents, we are using the additional EYPP (Early Years Pupil Premium) Funding to continue our weekly sessions with MADE for this academic year. The Music and Dance workers will continue to work with staff and children on a weekly basis to develop their creativity and imaginary play. Each weekly workshop will have a focus around a particular theme, building on the interests expressed by the children. These workshops will provide a wide range of learning opportunities focused around Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Communication and Language Skills. These workshops will also give the children further opportunities to develop to their full potential.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Oasis Centre for further information about the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP).
