Free Early Education for three and four year olds

Every child can have 15 hours free early education per week from the term after their third birthday. 

Your child’s free early education gives them a great start in life.  It can give your child the chance to make new friends and they can explore and learn in a safe environment which has activities built around their needs.

Your child can get their free place at schools, day nurseries, children’s centres, childminders or pre-schools.

Early Education is free for all three and four year olds so you should not have to pay for anything extra for your child to go to their free 15 hours early education place.
