We are an acceptable provider under the Government’s scheme for free part-time pre-school education in Hampshire.

At Little Gems Pre-school we offer both the Government’s 30 hours free childcare scheme for working parents of 3 and 4 year-olds, plus the universal 15 hours government funding available to all families. We also accept tax free childcare vouchers. This funding comes into effect from the beginning of the school term following a child’s third birthday.

We also accept FEET funding (Free Early Education for Two-year olds) for children under 3 years of age. This is available to parents meeting certain criteria. Please contact the pre-school office for further details or check your eligibility here.
