By claiming early years education funding you are agreeing to the Early Years Education Funding Payment Terms and Conditions V1.2 dated 1 September 2016.
The new Parent Declaration form for September 2016 is now available - see EYE and EYPP forms and guidance section on the right hand side of this page.
If you have already used the existing Parent Declaration Form for the autumn claims, do not worry as these can still be accepted as evidence that you have permission from parents to claim Early Years Education funding for their child.
Don't forget that EYE funding is only for 38 weeks x 15 hours and it is your responsibility to ensure claim totals for children do not exceed 570 hours per child's eligibility birthday year. If always the maximum available claim for standard hours across the year, this will add up to 39 weeks x 15 hours which will exceed the maximum available.
This is 11 hours per week x 13 weeks plus 9 spare hours that parents may wish to take in total this funding period. If your stretch offer is more than 11 hours per week and adds up to more than 152 hours this funding period please contact your local office.
