Early years pupil premium

From 2024, childcare providers can get extra funding to support 2, 3 to 4-year-olds including:

  • your child if you’re getting certain benefits
  • a child looked after by the council
  • a child looked after by special guardians and or there is a Child Arrangement Order
  • a child adopted from care

This extra funding is called early years pupil premium (EYPP) and can give up to £388 per year extra to childcare providers such as pre-schools, nurseries, or childminders.

The extra money can help pay for things like books, resources, services, or extra staff training. EYPP is paid directly to childcare providers.
