Exclusive FEEE Entitlement
We aim to deliver the Free Early Education Entitlement (15hour) in a variety of ways as explained below.
5 day Sessions
This will consist of five three-hourly morning sessions or five three-hourly afternoon sessions (9am - 12pm).
2 day Sessions
This will consist of two 7.5 sessions (9am - 4.30pm).
Children attending non-funded days/session in addition to their Free Entitlement will be charged at our current rates as reflected in our registration forms. You will be invoiced in the usual way showing how many free hours your child is receiving in that period and what the additional charges are.
