Early Years Single Funding Formula (EYSFF) Currently the EYSFF hourly rate is made up as follows: A fixed base rate A variable rate for 3 elements Flexibility start and finish times Quality Ofsted outcome/staff qualifications Deprivation funding per child calculated using the Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index (IDACI) based on childs home address How to Make a claim

Introduction We will cover: Eligibility Some basic statutory rules How to prepare for and make your first claim How to claim for children starting after headcount Payment Some top tips Where to look for further help in operating the scheme. Who is eligible? Eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds can access the 570 hours from the funding period following their birthday

Eligibility for 2 year olds can be checked using the Eligibility Checking Service (ECS) log in required. Parents can also check for themselves For a 4 year old child starting school they may not access all their 570 hours through the preschool as they are receiving the equivalent through school attendance. You are responsible for ensuring that children are eligible to claim. You should check birth certificates and keep a record of the check you have made When are children eligible? Early Years Education to be provided in three funding periods:

Date of Birth range Funding starts 1 January 31 March 1 April 1 April 31 August 1 September 1 September 31 December 1 January What can you claim? Eligibility and Framework Minimum session length

2.5 hours Maximum session length 10 hours Hours Not before 7am, not after 7pm Weeks

Providing funded places for 38 weeks and a stretched option Minimum number of days 2 Number of providers Maximum of 2 How do I prepare for my first claim? You need to organise a parent declaration form for

each child you are making a claim for; You will need: Proof of the childs eligibility (childs date of birth) Each childs start and finish dates The number of weeks you are claiming The number of hours per week for each child To know if any child attends another setting, this is known as

split setting. You need to speak to the other setting to agree how many hours you and the other setting are claiming so the child does not to exceed 15 hours per week. Parent Declaration Forms Must be completed for each child you include on your first and every subsequent claim that covers the period being claimed. This is your authorisation to make a claim They are available on the SfYC website Must be retained according to requirements of the terms and conditions

Calculating each childs hours The attendance pattern of each child will be that agreed on parent declaration form. You need the number of hours per week multiplied by the number of weeks claiming in the funding period. There is a maximum number of hours to allow for a proportion of the 570 hours to be available each funding period you should not exceed these hours. If you always claim the maximum hours you will exceed the 570 hours available over that year of eligibility The maximum number of hours shown as available is to allow flexibility for the way you can offer and parents can take up the free entitlement.

Stretched offer If you are able to offer attendance over more than 38 weeks you can also provide what is called a stretched offer. Depending on how many weeks your setting is open and how

parents wish to take these hours you can allocate the 570 across more weeks. Providers determine pattern based on consultation with parents and operational requirements. There is a ready reckoner on the SfYC website to help you calculate the number of hours per week across the number of weeks you wish to offer. We recommend only offering one alternative to the 15 hour per week offer (standard offer), however if you have the administrative capacity you can meet a variety of parent requirements. Managing the stretched offer across the year

Depending on the number of hours and weeks offered and agreed with parents, they will either have spare hours to use, or will be in excess of the allowance and will need to choose which days they will not claim these across the eligible year. For example: Government Manifesto on early years childcare Information to be formalised over coming weeks/months Pledge of 30 hours tax free childcare for working parents for children up to 12 years

old SfYC to consider implications survey monkey to be used to establish issues for EY providers How do I make my first claim? All new providers can claim through an on-line system book your time with your local office If training is not available in time, paper headcount form can be used for the first time and online for your second claim. You need to submit your claim based on details of children eligible on role on the third Thursday of each

funding period known as headcount day. There is also a deadline for submission which is the fourth Friday of the funding period. When will I be paid? EYE is paid in each of the three funding periods starting: 1 January 1 April 1 September Following the receipt of a complete and correct claim payment will be made in 10 working days.

If there are any queries regarding your claim the 10 days start from the resolution of the query. It can take 3 or 4 days for payment to clear into setting bank accounts. How will I be paid? You will be paid into a bank account in the name of your setting It should be an ordinary business bank account If you have not already done so you should return your bank details to Services for Young Children using the appropriate

form provided to you by your local office How much will I be paid? The Early Years Single Funding Formula is used to calculate the hourly rate for each provider http://www3.hants.gov.uk/childrens-services/childcare/providers/ey e-eysff/eysff.htm

This is made up of 4 key elements: Base rate currently 3.81 Flexibility Quality Staff qualifications Quality Ofsted judgment (but new providers will be assumed to be at a Requires Improvement level until first inspection) In addition IDACI supplement is added on a child basis How much will I be paid? Your first claim will be on the base rate unless you have already submitted your flexibility and staffing qualifications information to your CDC/local office and your full rate has

already been calculated. If you are paid at the base rate and following assessment of flexibility and quality this increases, you will be paid the difference. New settings; the first Ofsted judgement will come into effect and impact on the funding calculation for the period in which the judgement is published. Following this it is an annual cycle based on the information collected in the autumn . Who do I contact with queries about my payment? As a general rule please do not contact the team about payments until 10 days after

the headcount deadline date (if you have not received a remittance advice). If you have a query please email [email protected] Or telephone 01962 847070 How do I claim for a child starting after Headcount day?

These are called in period claims The claim form is on the website and you can complete as soon as the child starts and submit as soon as completed However claims are not paid until after half term and headcount has been completed Always check if another setting has already claimed for the child. Funding follows the child so you must contact the other setting to claim the funding which may have already been paid to them You should only make an in period claim for additional hours that may not have been claimed by the previous setting.

You should submit any in period claims within 10 working days of the end of the funding period being claimed for Top tips on helping me manage the EYE scheme Balance of hours It is recommended that you maintain a balance of hours for each child Standard offer - You should make parents aware that there are 570 hours which is 38 weeks x 15 hours. If you are operating to school terms you may be open for 39 weeks so you need to agree which weeks are available and will be claimed for Stretched offer if parents want to change from

stretched to 38 week standard offer or visa versa it is easiest to do this at the beginning of their eligible birthday year What do we do with your claim? All claims are checked: Each childs date of birth is within the date range Number of hours being claimed this funding period Are the hours being claimed in excess of the 570? Has the claim been fully and correctly completed Any queries will stop the 10 day turnaround clock which will be started again when the query is resolved
