Funded Places

The Early Years funding (EY funding) has been put in place to allow all 3 and 4 year olds access to free Early Years Education.

We also provide our own financial support for
parents who qualify for help.

Who’s eligible

There are some 2 year olds that are eligible to receive 15 hrs free per week. This has to be applied for on-line through the Government scheme.

What it covers

The funding is paid to cover sessions over a total of 38 weeks during term time only. It is taken in three terms, starting in September for the Autumn Term, January for the Spring Term and April for the Summer Term.
Here at Bright Stars we offer the option to stretch the funding over the full 51 weeks that we are open.

What about other times?

Children can of course be registered to attend at other times, however, our normal fees will apply.
