Free Early Education for 2, 3 and 4 year olds

Government Funding for education is available in the term after the child turns 3 (please see table below). Barnies will notify you when your child becomes eligible for funding and confirm the current number of hours applicable as determined by KCC. This allocation can be split between EYFS providers but once the amount to be claimed at Barnies has been established parents are required to sign the KCC Parental Declaration as confirmation. The funding is only applicable during the stipulated term dates as stated by KCC with a maximum period of 38 weeks per year. KCC use the Single Funding Formula to determine the cost of ‘education’ under the government funding but additional charges are applicable for the ‘wrap around care’.  Therefore, fees for the wrap around care are charged at the usual rate. 

We are also registered to take children under the Free for 2 scheme.

Childcare Choices

The Government is introducing Childcare Choices. Childcare Choices brings together all the government childcare offers for the first time, helping parents find the right childcare support to suit them.

As part of Childcare Choices they are introducing two new offers in 2017 – Tax-Free Childcare, which will be introduced on 28 April and gradually rolled out, and 30 hours free childcare, available from September 2017. From the end of April, parents will begin to apply for both schemes at the same time through a new digital childcare service. Download the Brochure HERE

The new Childcare Choices website provides information on the new and existing Government childcare offers.
