YMCA Pre-School is in receipt of free early education funding for two, three and four year olds.  The Government provides 15 hours free early education a week for all 3 and 4 year olds from the term after their 3rd birthday.  Subject to certain criteria, children of working parents may also be eligilbe to claim an additional 15 hours of free entitlement.  We offer a number of these 30 hour free childcare places.  We are also able to claim up to 15 hours free early education for your 2 year olds and the early year's pupil premium for 3 and 4 year old children if you are in receipt of certain benefits.
