Early education funding
The Local Authority provides funding to enable early education providers, in both the maintained and non maintained sectors, to offer free part-time early education places to eligible three and four year olds.
The Local Authority also holds a directory of providers eligible to claim this funding. Maintained providers (for example schools) are automatically included but non-maintained providers are required to formally register with the North Yorkshire County Council.
To be eligible for inclusion, non-maintained providers must be one of the following:
The Local Authority attaches conditions to inclusion in the directory, to ensure the provision is of a suitable standard, and providers are required to sign an annual contract.
