Free entitlement is provided by the government to ensure all children between the ages 3 and 4 have access to good quality early education. All children will work within the Foundation Stage Curriculum. Learning through play is the key element of the Foundation, and takes into account individual children’s needs and stages of development.

As a part of the governments Free Entitlement Scheme, West Sussex County Council (WSCC) will fund up to 15 hours per week for all children aged 3-4 and an additional 15 hours for eligible 3-4 years olds. Non-funded hours are charged at a cost of £5.00 per hour. For a straightforward explanation of all government childcare support please visit:
