Government Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE)
Children aged 3 and 4 are entitled to access 15 hours of EYFE a week for up to 38 weeks of the year. Your child qualifies for this free entitlement from the academic term following their 3rdbirthday until the end of the term of your child’s 5th birthday. It may be applied in both Little Grange and Reception years.
The EYFE at Holme Grange School is offered between the hours of 09.00-12.00 or 13.00-16.00 within a package of integrated early learning and care subject to availability. This is offered over the full school week, Monday to Friday inclusive, over our academic year of 34 weeks.
The EYFE is shown without any monetary value on termly fee invoices. Any additional services which the parents may opt for are charged in addition.
Within Wokingham Borough there are a variety of EY providers offering the free entitlement. Some may offer the free entitlement only, without access to any additional services, others offer it over fewer hours of the week. Parents are encouraged to choose a service provider which best meets their needs. Holme Grange School offers term time sessions to fit in with the free entitlement over a 34 week academic year only.
