Early Years Premium

Childcare providers can claim up to £300 per year for a child who meets the eligibility criteria.

If you are in receipt of any of the following benefits, please contact our Pre-School managers – we may be able to attract some extra funding:

  • Income support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Park VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Stats Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (Provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It’s taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year.

Last year, we received £604.20 in Early Years Pupil Premium. We used this to:

  • purchase a variety of table top activities, which promoted the children’s skills in communication to help them play equally and sociably with their peers.
  • a dolls pushchair
  • ‘people who help us’ dressing up clothes to promote the children’s imagination and collaborative play.
