Two-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours per week funded childcare for 38 weeks per year (normally in term time) where parents and carers meet certain eligibility criteria. We offer either morning or afternoon sessions:

Monday to Friday 09.00 – 12.00 or Monday to Friday 12.30 – 15.30

Please call us to register your child or find out more.

Eligibility criteria for 3-4 year olds – 30 hours free education

The additional 15 hours will be available to families where both parents, or the sole parent in a lone-parent family:

  • are working and earn on average a weekly minimum amount equivalent to working 16 hours at either National Minimum Wage (NMW) or National Living Wage (NLW)
  • have an income of less than £100,000 each per year.

Approved families will be offered their first 15 hours over 5 mornings or 5 afternoons. Additional entitlement will be given across the remaining 5 mornings or 5 afternoons to make a full 30 hour week, with daily sessions from 09.15 – 15.15, Monday to Friday. The lunch cost is £2.50. This is because families may find they are no longer eligible for the additional hours test words during the year and will need to revert back to their 15 hours funded entitlement sessions. We also offer extended sessions from 09.00 – 15.30 Monday to Friday for a fee of £3.00 per day, plus lunch cost @ £2.50.

If your child is aged three or over you can apply now at www.surreycc.gov.uk/30hourschildcare. Once your eligibility is confirmed you will be given an 11 digit code which you will need to give to us. You will need to reconfirm your eligibility every three months to continue claiming the additional 15 hours.

We are happy to help you with applications for any of these options. Please ask at Reception, or contact us to find out more.
