Financial Assistance

Under the Early Years Education Scheme, the Council will pay for 15 hours a week during the Hampshire County Council school term for children from the term after their 3rd birthday. Additionally, some parents will be eligible for 30 hours of funding. Please go to www.hants.gov.uk for further details (funding applies to term time only, 38 weeks per year).

Little Faces is also part of the Two Year Old Funding Scheme; some two-year-olds meeting specific criteria are entitled to 15 hours a week free childcare. Parent/carers can apply for the funding period before their child is eligible. Children can start their funding the term after their 2nd birthday.

Little Faces is also part of the voucher scheme, please ask a member of the nursery staff for more information.

We also accept all childcare vouchers.

Financial Assistance with Childcare for HSDC Students

Childcare Support for young learners (aged under 20)

If you are a young parent studying at HSDC (under 20 when your course starts) and you want to start or continue in learning, you could be eligible for help with your childcare costs through the Government ‘Care to Learn’ scheme.

The subject or course you take is up to you and you can study on a part-time or full-time basis.

While you are learning you could be helping to build a better future for you and your family by gaining new skills and qualifications. You will also be meeting new people and making new friends which may give you greater confidence and independence.

Care to Learn is designed to give you the help and support you need to enjoy studying without added worries. Please see the website for more information and how to apply
