Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE) (Universal Entitlement)

EYEE entitles children to 15 hours of free childcare the term after their third birthday and at

Barn Owls Pre-School EYEE can be taken between 8.45am and 3.15pm. Parents can use some

or all of their entitlement, which can be split between 2 settings. If parents would like to

use more than their 15 hour entitlement, the additional hours will be charged at the normal

hourly rate of £6.80 per hour, unless claiming the extended entitlement.

 

Extended Entitlement (30 hours)

Qualifying parents will also be able to use some or all of their 30

hours extended government funded childcare at Barn Owls Pre-School. This is also available

to qualifying families the term after a child’s third birthday.

Parents of 3 and 4 year olds can apply for the 30 hours extended entitlement if they meet

the eligibility criteria:

Both parents must be working (or the lone parent is working in single parent families).

Each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national

minimum wage.

Each parent must have an annual income of less than £100,000 per annum.

Two Year Funding

If your child qualifies for 2 year old funding, you will be entitled to 15 hours free childcare

per week, which can be taken between 9.00am and 3pm. If parents would like to use more

than their free 15 hours, the additional time will be charged at the normal hourly rate of

£6.80.
