What is the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)?

From April 2015 nurseries are able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care.
Little Learners Nurseries requires parents to complete their nursery start pack which includes EYPP information, which is used to check if your child is eligible if you meet the eligibility criteria (stated below) for the Pupil Premium funding.
The EYPP will be available for eligible children from April 2015.
