Fees and Early Years Funding

2-year-old funding:

Based on a range of criteria the funding gives your child up to 15 hours a week of learning opportunities.

This gives your child the chance to mix with other children and try out different activities. It also gives you, the parent, 15 hours a week to study, return to or look for work.

Check your eligibility: 


3 and 4-year-old funding:

  • Universal funding

Every child that is 3 or 4 years old is automatically entitled to 15 hours of funded childcare the term after their 3rd birthday.

As for 2-year-old funding, this can only be accessed at approved childcare providers.

  • Extended funding

The additional 15 hours funding is also known as the '30 hours funded childcare'.

This is an extension of the 3 and 4-year-old funding. Unlike the universal entitlement, you must match the eligibility criteria. If you are found to be eligible you will be given a validity code. This will let you claim up to an additional 15 hours from an approved provider.
