Early years fees increase

An increase in the hourly fee for children attending the Early Years Foundation Stage, in non-school based nursery provision and school-based Extended Day Care (EDC), has been announced.

While the MoD continues to subsidise nursery provision and school-based extended day care in Germany, fees are required to reflect the UK national average and are reviewed annually. The results of the latest review mean that an increase in fees is necessary. 

From June 1, 2014, fees for early years care will increase by €0.40 from the current hourly rate of €4.82 (£3.98 at the Forces Fixed Rate (FFR) of 1.21) to the new rate of €5.22 (£4.31 at the FFR 1.21). The table below sets out the new fee structure.
