Free Early Education (old Early Years Vouchers)
Early Years Fees are based on the number of sessions your child attends.
Who is entitled to Free Early Education at Dover College?
All children in our Early Learners are entitled to 15 hours free early education each week, commencing the term after their 3rd birthday.
Due to changes made by Kent County Council, we no longer offer 15 hours free once your child has moved into our Reception class, even if they have not yet reached statutory school age.
When and how will I get my Free Early Education?
Dover College offers 18 Free Early Education places for 33 weeks of the year.
Each term the school is required to complete a head count of the pupils who are eligible to receive free hours, according to their age. Dover College will invoice parents as appropriate for any additional sessions. The School will receive payment directly from the LEA for those accessing free sessions.
