Funding for Three and Four Year Olds

All children are entitled to a maximum of 15 hours of free entitlement funding per week, for 38 weeks per year, from the beginning of the term following their third birthday.

Bybrook Pre-school is registered to receive government funding and all children attending the pre-school of an eligible age are entitled to such funding.

When a child becomes eligible for a funded place at pre-school, parents are provided with a Parent Declaration Agreement Form to complete and return to pre-school.

An eligible child can attend a maximum of 15 funded hours in any week; this can be divided between 2 providers if he/she is attending more than one setting.

Funding is for 38 weeks a year only, and therefore if the pre-school opens for any additional weeks, funded children will be charged for any additional sessions they choose to attend at the normal rate.  Funding is provided directly to the pre-school by Wiltshire Council.

Funding for Two Year Olds

Some 2-year-olds in England can get free early education and childcare.

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

  • They have a current statement of special education needs (SEN) or an education health and care pla
