Welsh FlagEarly Education Funding

We are the only setting locally that offer these funded sessions 52 weeks of the year.

 

What is Early Education Funding?

Our nursery is registered for early education funding, which means that we follow the foundation phase curriculum. The curriculum encourages children to be creative, imaginative and makes learning more enjoyable and more effective. Children will be given opportunities to explore the world around them and understand how things work by taking part in practical activities relevant to their developmental stage. They will be challenged through practical activities and develop their thinking with open-ended questions. Children will be encouraged to explore concepts and share ideas for solving problems.


The Foundation Phase has 7 areas of learning which are delivered through practical activities and active learning experiences both indoors and outdoors. The areas of learning are:

  • Personal and social development, well-being and cultural diversity

  • Language, literacy and communication skills

  • Mathematical development

  • Welsh language development

  • Knowledge and understanding of the world

  • Physical development

  • Creative development

How does early education funding work?

  • You will be entitled to the funding the term after your child's third birthday

  • It consists of 2 hours per day, either in the morning, afternoon or a combination of both.

  • You can use a maximum of 5 funded sessions per week.

  • The funded session value at present is 7.00, therefore if you wanted to do a full morning session the 7.00 would be taken off to reduce the session price. 

  • We are the only setting locally that offer these funded sessions 52 weeks of the year



 

How do you apply for the funding?


Simply fill out a quick form that we have available in the nursery and we do the rest for you.
