FEEE Funding for 2, 3 & 4 year olds
The Funded Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) is a government initiative which funds early years education for children aged 3 and 4 years for up to 15 or 30 hours per week during term time only.
Some 2 year olds are also eligible for funding, up to 15 hours per week during term time only, subject to certain criteria. Our nurseries offer 15 and 30 hours early years education entitlement placement (subject to availability).READ MORE
Tax free childcare
If you're a working parent with children under 12 (or under 17 for disabled children), you can open an online account to pay for registered childcare.
The government will top-up the money you pay into the account. For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2. You can receive up to £2,000 per child, or £4,000 if disabled.READ MORE
Childcare vouchers are being phased out because of the introduction of Tax Free Childcare. If you are already using childcare vouchers, you can continue to use them, or you can change to Tax Free Childcare.
Your employer may provide childcare vouchers, which mean you do not have to pay tax on some of your childcare costs. You can get information about this from your employer.
Universal Credit or Working Tax Credit
Working Tax Credit and Universal Credit are paid to people in work to top up low wages. This includes earnings from employment and earnings if you are self-employed.
If you, and any partner, are working, or you’re due to start work, and you’re claiming Universal Credit, you can claim back up to 85% of your eligible childcare costs for children under 16. You could get up to £646 a month for one child, or £1,108 for two or more.
Universal Credit is being phased in over the next few years. It will replace a number of existing benefits, including tax credits. Whether you can claim will depend on where you live and your circumstances.READ MORE
