Free Childcare

All three to four-year-olds in England can get 570 hours of free early education or childcare per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year.  Some two-year-olds are also eligible.

From September 2017, you may be able to receive 30 hours per week of free early education and childcare if your child is three or four years old.

The availability of funded childcare and the number of hours on offer depends on your circumstances and your child's age.

Children are offered a place without deposit or registration fee in respect of these hours of care.
