Early Years Inclusion Funding for Settings
Early Years Inclusion for children with SEND in nursery
For most children, including those with low levels of special educational need, the provision provided by their pre-school setting will enable them to flourish and make good progress. However, for some children with a higher level of need, additional funding may need to be put in place in order for the right support to be implemented, in order for them to gain the full benefit of a high quality early education offer.
The different types of funding available are listed below.
Early Years Support Places
Haringey has a number of places in Children’s Centres which have been reserved for and additionally funded to meet the needs of children with high level complex Special Educational Needs. These places are called ‘Early Support’ places and they are available for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. The Settings which have Early Support Places are:

If you would like your child to be referred for an Early Support Place, you should discuss it with the professionals working with your child. They will be able to advise you as to whether your child will meet the criteria, and be able to make a referral for your child.
We advise you to visit the centres you are interested in before you apply and ask the professional referring you to indicate clearly your preferred setting.
Early Years Inclusion funding
Haringey also provides a fund known as the Early Years Inclusion Fund, to which all Haringey pre-school settings can apply in order to receive additional funding to support them to meet your child’s needs. The fund, often called Top Up, is paid at two different rates which is dependent on need. There is more information about the different levels of need and what the setting can do with the funding is described in the document below.
Early Years Inclusion Funding is allocated a term at a time. At the end of each term, the setting will review the funding and its impact in order for it to be renewed.

Disability Access Fund
If your child is aged 3 or 4 years and you claim Disability Living Allowance for your child, please inform your nursery or child care setting. Your setting can claim £615 from Haringey to help them support your child in nursery. This is one-off funding that can be used to make sure your child’s setting is as inclusive as possible.
Education Health Care Plan
Some children and young people may require an Education, Health and Care needs assessment in order for the council to decide whether it is necessary for it to make provision in accordance with an EHCP.
