Early Years Education Funding

15 hours universal funding:

Tadpoles is registered with the Hampshire Services for Young Children. Children aged 3 and 4 are entitled to access up to 15 hours a week over 38 weeks of free Early Years Education. This is a total of 570 hours in each 12 month period from the date your child becomes eligible. This means we are able to offer the universal government funded 15 hours a week to children from the term after their 3rd birthday.

30 hours extended funding:

On top of the ‘universal’ entitlement of 570 hours of free early years education, children aged 3 and 4 may also be able to benefit from an additional 570 hours from 1 September 2017. For more information and to check your eligibility and apply for the extended funding ‘here’.

2 Year old Early Years Education funding:

This is part of a national offer from the Department for Education (DfE) and has been developed to improve outcomes for identified two year olds who would benefit from access to high quality early years and childcare provision.

Eligible children are entitled to access up to 15 hours a week over 38 weeks of free Early Years Education, this is a total of 570 hours in each 12 month period.

Your 2 year old can have free early education and childcare if you claim welfare benefits or your child is looked after by the local authority or has additional needs.

There are upcoming changes happening with the funding:

From April 2024 - Up to 15 hours for eligible working families in England with a 2-year-old. 

From September 2024 - Up to 15 hours for eligible working families in England with a child between 9 and 23 months old.
