Early Years Free funding for your Child
All three and four year olds and eligible two year olds are entitled to free part-time early years learning until the school term in which they have their fifth birthday. Children of the eligible age are guaranteed a free early years place.
Our session timings are as follows:
Downside Morning- 8:45am till 11:45am Chaul End Morning- 9.00am till 12.00pm
Downside Afternoon- 12:30pm till 3:30pm Chaul End Afternoon- 1.00pm till 4.00pm
How do I Claim the Free Hours?
At the start of each funding period your Early Years provider will give you a simple form to complete called a "Luton Nursery Education Funding, Parental Declaration and Agreement Form".
You will be required to sign this as a declaration of your claim at the start of each funding period.
You will be asked to confirm the number of hours you are claiming from that Early Years provider and state how many hours (if any) you are claiming from another Early Years provider.
Funding for your child’s hours is then paid directly to your Early Years provider(s).
