Two Year Funding

 In September 2013, Busy Bees began offering spaces for children entitled to two year funding.  

Two year funding is available to parents in receipt of certain benefits.  Parents are required to apply for the funding to Herefordshire Council who assess the claim.  Parents then receive a letter confirming whether the child is eligible.  Once parents have received this letter and brought it in to show us, we are then able to book sessions for the child.


If eligible, your child will be entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week from the term after they turn 2.  The dates are as follows:


Born between: 

1st January to 31st March - funding commences from the Summer term

1st April to 31st August  - funding commences Autumn term

1st September to 31st December - funding commences Spring term

* Please note term dates vary


The 15 hours can be taken between the hours of 9am and 3pm.  


You can find out more information on the Herefordshire Council website:
