3 and 4 year old 15hour funding
What is free early education and childcare?
The government funds up to 570 hours of free childcare per year for all 3 and 4 year olds until they go to full-time school. This works out as 15 hours a week if your child takes up the childcare during term time, or you could choose to take fewer hours over more weeks in the year. This is worth over £3,000 per year. All three and four year olds are able to take a place the term after their birthday.
