Funded childcare for 3 and 4-year-olds

6. Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4-year-olds. For further information about the Early Years Pupil Premium visit GOV.UK.

How this could help your child

It will help your child to:

  • benefit from extra resources and equipment suited to their needs
  • enjoy a range of new play, learning and activity experiences
  • be prepared for starting school

Childcare settings will have to demonstrate to Ofsted how funds have been used to improve your child's education. If you're still eligible, the funding can also be transferred if your child moves to another childcare provider.
