15 Hours Funded Childcare for 2 year olds at Tinies Daycare

As an Ofsted-registered early years provider, Tinies Nurseries is able to offer funded early years education and childcare for 2 year old children

In order to sustainably offer these funded places, we offer stretched funding of 11 hours per week, 51 weeks of the year, rather than 15 hours for 38 weeks of the year.

Who is eligible for 2 year old funded childcare?

Your child may be eligible for the 2 year funded places if you are in receipt of:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Universal Credit - if you and your partner have a combined income from work of £15,400 or less a year, after tax
  • Tax credits and you have an income of £16,190 or less a year, before tax
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act
  • The Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

A child can also get free early education and childcare if any of the following apply:

  • They're looked after by a local council
  • They have a current statement of special education needs (SEN) or an education, health and care (EHC) plan
  • They get Disability Living Allowance
  • They've left care under a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or adoption order

How many free hours can I get and how can I use them?

At Tinies Nurseries you can claim up to 11 hours of funded childcare spread across 51 weeks a year (570 hours).

How much is the 2 year old funding worth?

This is dependent on the setting you chose, and the funded hourly rate is dependent on the Nursery Rate card.

Can I use my funded hours at more than one setting?

2 year old funded hours can only be used at one setting.

Which nursery setting can I use my funded hours at?

The nursery must be an approved childcare provider. You can find out more information on this from your local authority.

Our two boys; 3.5yrs and 16 months are so happy and settled here. They are very comfortable with the staff and always run straight off to play when we drop them off. The staff are excellent at communicating how the boys are on a daily basis and each term through regular reviews and assessments of how they are developing. The boys have regular trips, do cooking, painting and lots of messy play. Our eldest talks a lot about his friends and the staff there and it is clear that they work on different topics each term as he talks about it a lot. Our youngest has been there for 6 months and is developing very confidently now. The food and snacks are great with a wide variety each week. It is a comfort to know how happy they both are there when going back to work after maternity leave with both boys and we would recommend them to friends and family.
