Early years funding


Devon County Council receives government funding for two, three and four-year-olds to access their early years entitlements.

This funding comes into the Local Authority as part of the Dedicated Schools Grant (Early Years Block) and is allocated to providers through a local funding formula.

If changes are required to funding formulas or budgets we consult with providers so that they have a greater understanding of the funding that is available and how it is distributed.
