Early Education for Three and Four Year Olds

All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of funded early education a week term time until they either go into reception or reach compulsory school age (the term following their fifth birthday). This entitlement is paid from the term after your child turns three and can be accessed at either a school nursery class, day nursery, pre school playgroup or childminder. 

Information on how to access your child's early education place is help in the 'Childcare and Early Education' section of this directory.
