Early Years (EYFS) at Educare Small School

Early Years Funding

As an independent charity, our only funding comes from the

fees we charge. We do our very best to keep these as reasonable as possible, so that our school can be accessed by as many young people as possible. 

Educare is a provider for the 15 hours universal funding, and for the 30 hours extended funding, but this funding only covers some of our charges and additional fees will be applied.

Please call 02085470144 for further details.

Exemption from the Early Years Foundation Stage framework

Educare provides a unique learning experience and has been awarded an exemption from the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS). This allows us the freedom to use our professional judgement ensuring our pupils are at the centre of our teaching. This allows us to tailor our teaching to the needs of the individual.

There is no change to the EYFS Safeguarding and Welfare requirements. Educare maintains the safety and wellbeing of our pupils.
