We are part of Hampshire County Council’s Early Education Plan and can receive funding for eligible two, three and four-year-olds. 

All 3 and 4-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours a week free childcare starting the term after their 3rd birthday; this can be claimed for 38 weeks of the year. Once your child has started Pre School, you will be given a funding claim form at the beginning of each term. Please ask our staff if you need help or advice filling in the form.

Some 3 and 4-year-olds of working parents are entitled to 30 hours of free childcare a week. You can check if you are eligible at the following Government website:

From April 2024 up to 15 hours free childcare will be available to many working parents of 2-year-olds. 

The government website gives information on what you may be entitled to claim. Parents who wish to claim 15 hours funding for 2-year-olds or 30 hours for 3&4-year olds, need to apply for an eligibility code by the following deadlines: for autumn term funding - 31st August; for spring term funding - 31st December; for summer term funding – 31st March.

Some children will be entitled to 2-year-old funding from the term after they turn two, if parents are eligible for certain benefits.

Children with significant special educational needs may also be able to access additional funding under the Disability Access Funding.


It is our intent that children who enter Pre-School begin their lifelong learning journey by developing physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally whilst also embedding a positive attitude to school and a love of learning.
