Free childcare places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds
Some children are eligible for free childcare places. Settings which have a yes next to the question 2, 3 and 4 year old funding can offer funded childcare places to:
- Two year olds eligible for free 15 hours
- Three and four year olds eligible for free 15 hours
- Working parents eligible for extended entitlement of 30 hours for three and four year olds
You can take your funded hours across more than one provider, so if a setting does not offer all the hours you want you can take some of your funded hours at one provider and use another provider for the rest.
