Information for Children Eligable to the free Early years Entitlement

All children are eligible for government funding from the term after their 3rd birthday, The funding is for up to 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year (term time) We offer this free entitlement between 8am and 6pm, a minimum of 2.5 hrs or a maximum of 6 hrs per day over a minimum of 3 days per week, sessions subject to a maximum of 3 hrs funding.

No charges are made to families accessing just the 15 hours free entitlement but times need to be booked in accordance with our terms and conditions. Where the free entitlement is accessed over a lunch period then families have the option of providing a nut free packed meal for their child or Rainbow is happy to provide a nutritionally balanced and healthy meal at a cost of £2.80 per day. Rainbow proudly holds a healthy choice award and all meals and snacks are prepared and cooked on premises.

Our children benefit from experiencing our range of menus and the social aspect of this experience. However, should you prefer to bring a packed meal for your child please come and discuss this in advance due to storage and allergy requirements.

Where families choose to access their free entitlement in conjunction with purchasing additional hours then sessions will be charged at Rainbow rates above with the funding deducted. This will show clearly on your monthly bill. Please feel free to come and discuss the available options ASAP and what will be best for you and your child.

Eligible 2-year-olds in England can also get free early education and childcare, this is subject to eligibility. Please see www.gov.uk/free-early-education . We operate this on the same system as above and is subject to availability.
