Sessions and Funding
From the term following their third birthday, a child can claim up to 15 hours of government funding per week for childcare and education. This funding is accessed directly through the pre-school.
There is some funding available for 2 year olds under a national scheme 2gether. This offers funded childcare places for two year olds living in households with low incomes, receive certain benefits, or if your child has a disability, special educational need or if they are adopted or placed under a residency order. It is designed to improve your child’s learning, and support you to be able to get training or a job. If you think you might qualify, the pre-school can provide more information. Or call 0345 155 1013 or visit www.devon.gov.uk/disc-2gether
The funding can be spread across Pre-school sessions, Breakfast and Lunch clubs. It can also be shared between two pre-school settings.
If you wish to discuss how your children can take advantage of this funding or any other financial implications, please don’t hesitate to speak to any of the Pre-school staff.
