Government funding can be claimed for the term following the child's 2nd &3rd anniversary. The child must be 2 or 3 years or above, respectively, before the calendar start date of the new term. The dates normally start on the 1st day of the month of the start date. Please note this does not always coincide with the school start date for that term.
4 year old's will receive a full funding of maximum 25hr's per week.
3 year old's 15 hr's per week with a further 15hr's available for qualifying parents. Parents will need to log int the HMRC website and register their details, to see if they qualify. If you are eligible you will receive a code which you will need to present to LPG on application, which we require to validate with OCC.
* Note: receiving a valid code does not mean your child is automatically eligible for extended funding. Your child will still need to be eligible by age for the relevant term.
