Funding available

At Capel Pre-School, we accept children under all types of funding available from the Government.  This could be the Free for 2 Scheme, Universal 3 and 4 years old Free Early Education Funding, the 30 hours funding, or Tax Free Childcare, for example.


At the beginning of the school year, parents are sent a copy of the Parental Declaration form. Parents who are hoping to receive the funding available from the government need to fill this form in and return it to the Pre-School. If you have lost your copy of the form, you can download a replacement copy using the link at the bottom of this page.
