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.
