The table below shows which term your child will become eligible for funding in according to their birthday:

This can be taken over a minimum of 2 days with no session being shorter than 2.5 hours per day or longer than 10 hours per day. Currently our sessions run from 2.5 hours to a maximum of 5.5 hours per day.
30 Hours Funding Eligibility (Extended Hours)
To get the additional hours you will need to sign up online to get an eligibility code . You'll also need to reconfirm your eligibility every 3months. You must apply for your 30 hours eligibility code in the term before your child becomes eligible by age. The government has recommended application periods. If you do not apply within these recommended periods, you may not get your code in time. If you do not apply for and receive your code before the deadline date you will not be able to take up your place until the term after. For more information visit Kent County Councils website
