The Kent Early Years Free Entitlement (KEYFE) is available to all 3 and 4 years olds in Kindergarten from the term following their third birthday up until the term the child is 5 years old and stops when they join Reception. The weekly entitlement is a maximum of 15 hours spread equally across 5 sessions (morning or afternoon), one session to be used per day during term time only. Please note that the Fosse Bank school year is 34 weeks, therefore, parents will not be able to claim the full free early education entitlement of 38 weeks. Full term dates are available here.
