Free Childcare for 2 year olds (FEET)

Free Early Education for Two year olds (FEET) offers eligible families up to 15 hours of free early education and childcare a week for 38 weeks a year.

We are unable to take 2 year olds in our preschool however we can take children from their 3rd birthday on FEET funding.

You can find out if your child can get FEET by checking the financial and automatically funded criteria on the Surrey Family Information Service webpage https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/people-and-community/family-information-service/choosing-childcare-for-children-and-young-people/paying-for-childcare/free-early-education-for-2-year-olds-feet


Please note you cannot claim for breakfast or after school club sessions and that if your child attends school they will not be entitled to claim.
