Early Years Funding (universal)

The first term after your child is 3 years old, your child will be able to claim 570 hours of funding, across the 50 weeks that we are open, this is used towards the cost of your invoice and is called stretched funding. We offer a maximum of 3 hours funding per session or 6 hours funding in a full day. We are not able to offer more than 11.4 hours funding per week. Our fees are based on a sessional charge not hourly.

However, a charge will be applied to your invoice for the time outside of the funded hours, as well as our extensive "Forest School Program", breakfast and other extra additional services and consumables that we provide at Little Oaks Forest School.

We are registered with all the major Voucher Companies they will all have our details please give them our setting name and address and we will receive your payments automatically.

Please remember invoices are due at the beginning every month so you may need to make a BACS payment first as your vouchers may not arrive in time.
