|Early Years Education Entitlement|
All parents of three and four year-olds are entitled to government money for their child's nursery education. This is known as the Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE)
What does the EYEE pay for?
It pays for up to five 3 hour education sessions a week at any EYEE registered pre-school provider.
The EYEE is funded over three funding periods a year and covers 38 weeks:
- Autumn, 1 September - 31 December (14 weeks)
- Spring, 1 January - 31 March (11 weeks)
- Summer, 1 April - 31 August (13 weeks)
When can my child start to receive the EYEE?
A child is entitled to start receiving the EYEE from the start of the funding period after their 3rd birthday.
So long as your child is enrolled with us at the beginning of the funding period after they turn three you will be able to make your application. This is a short form called a ‘Parental Declaration' which we will then send on to the EYEE team for you.
