Extra funding for childcare providers supporting 3 and 4 year olds

If you’re an early years childcare provider, including nursery or child minder, you may be able to claim additional funding to support the learning and development of 3 and 4 year olds. This additional funding is called the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP).

To be eligible for the funding you must be:

  • registered with us 
  • supporting 3 and 4 year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds

To find out whether a child’s eligible for the EYPP you will either need to ask the child’s parent/carer to complete a short online form or ask them for permission to complete it on their behalf.

For more information about Early Education Entitlement funding for eligible two year olds please log on to EYMIS (Early Years Management Information System).

You can find out more about extra funding for childcare providers supporting disadvantaged 3 and 4-year-olds on the Gov.uk website.
