Early years pupil premium
Childcare providers can get extra funding to support 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 Arrangements Order
- a child adopted from care
This extra funding is called early years pupil premium (EYPP) and can give up to £302 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 training for staff. EYPP is paid directly to childcare providers.
