Free Early Education for 2 year olds (FEET) funding

Some children are eligible for FEET funding in the term after they turn 2 years old. Children who automatically qualify include:

  • Looked after or previously looked after children
  • Children on education, health and care plan
  • Children in families on income support
  • Children whose families claimed child tax credits or working tax credits and have a gross income up to £16,160
  • Child in receipt of disability living allowance

There are also other eligible criteria for more information, please see http://www.surreycc.gov.uk and search for FEET funding.

Currently we offer limited places to FEET funded children in the 2-3 year old afternoon session as the funding does not cover the running costs of the session due to the need for higher staff ratios. We are able to accommodate a number of FEET funded children who are eligible to attend the morning session ( autumn born children) as the requirements for staffing ratios are lower.

Please contact us for more information if you require it.

    Positive learning environment

    We create a safe, secure, caring, stimulating and fun environment, where the staff develop the children’s learning through play.

    Woodland Explorers

    These sessions give the children the opportunity to be outside, in a small group, and experience fun and interesting activities. We use an area of woodland which acts as an outdoor classroom, where children can explore, investigate and discover the natural environment.

    All-weather Outdoor Play

    There is is an extensive outdoor space encompassing a hard standing area and a large garden. A large canopy covers part of this outside area and allows outdoor play in all weather.
