We normally suggest our 2 year olds start with two sessions a week, perhaps two morning or afternoon sessions or a morning and an afternoon session.
3 & 4 YEAR OLDS
All three and four year olds are entitled to receive EYEE (Early Years Educational Entitlement). This allows each child to access up to 15 hours a week of free nursery provision for 38 weeks a year. At Southover, these free hours can be claimed within our EYEE block times as set out below. We recommend that, if possible, children stay for a whole session (either until 12.30pm or until 3pm) as this allows them to settle in quickly and take part fully in all our activities. Any time attended in addition to the free hours can simply be paid for at our hourly rate. Please contact us for further information and advice. EYEE funding begins a full term after a child’s 3rd birthday.

Please note, we require a minimum of 6 weeks notice if you plan to leave the nursery or drop any of your sessions.
Information about EYEE funding from East Sussex County Council is available for you to read on our parents' notice board.
We are always available to help, so do please ask if you have any questions about session times, fees or funding.
