All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to Government Funding from the term following their 3rd birthday. This is called Early Years Education Funding (EYEF) and entitles the child to up to 15 hours free childcare per week term time (38 weeks of the year). Scallywags claims this funding on your behalf.
Some children are entitled to EYEF from the term after their 2nd birthday if certain criteria are met. Details of this criteria and how to apply can be obtained from www.devon.gov.uk/twoyearoldfunding (you will need to open a Citizens Portal account) or phone 0345 155 1013. Parents must let us know when they receive notification of entitlement to funding.
Some families are eligible for 30 hours "extended entitlement" funding. Parents need to apply for this - at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. If eligible, please let us have your code as soon as possible - we cannot confirm your funded place until we have verified your code with Devon County Council. Please do Contact Us if you want to know more or have any questions.
It is possible to share funding between two or more childcare providers, but you must tell each provider where else you are claiming funding.
