The Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) or ‘Funding’ at Home from Home Nursery
The Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) is government funding distributed by Local Authorities to childcare providers to offer free early learning sessions for all 3&4 year olds and some 2 year olds. The entitlement is for a maximum of 15 hours per week over 38 weeks per year.
Children can receive their EYFE from the start of term after their 3rd (or 2nd if eligible) birthday, see the table below.
|Child’s birthday||eligible for EYFE from:|
|1st January – 31st March||1st April|
|1st April – 31st August||1st September|
|1st September – 31st December||1st January|
At Home from Home we offer the entitlement at sessions attended during school term times in blocks of 3 hours which can be taken up to, but no more than twice a day, to the maximum allowed per week i.e. 15 hours. As Home from Home is open for 51 weeks per year, fees for normal full sessions are charged during non-term time.
EYFE funding covers 3 hours of a session, leaving a residual fee to pay for the additional 2 hours of a morning session and the 1½ hours of an afternoon session. The charges these extra hours are detailed below.
EYFE Morning (extra 2 hrs) is charged at £14.22
EYFE Afternoon (extra 1½ hrs) is charged at £10.66
Alternatively, families can request to access only their EYFE and this will need to be taken in blocks of 3 hours during school term-times between the following times* :
8am – 11am
1pm – 4pm
