EYE Funding in Hampshire

We offer a range of session options for you and your child, 9-12, 9-1, 9-3, 9-3.15, 12-3 and 12-3.15.  Our pre-school provides 40 spaces, including a maximum of 8 places for 2 year old's.  All children are entitled to 15 hours a week free learning and care in an early years setting from the beginning of the term following their third birthday, for 38 weeks in a full year.  This totals 570 hours.  We also offer spaces for 3 and 4 year old children who are eligible for 30 hours free funding and 2 year old's who are eligible for 15 hours funding.  If you think that your child may be eligible for either of these, please follow the links below for more information

We are able to provide additional hours over your free entitlement every additional hour session is available for £4.47 for 3 and 4 year old's and £5.20 for two year old's which is either payable in advance on receipt of an invoice.  Failure to pay on time risks losing your child’s place at the Pre-school. We reserve the right to refuse admission if payments are not recieved.
