Our Prices

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 hours of free early education or childcare per year. This is usually taken as 15 hours each week for 38 weeks of the year. You may also be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year) depending on your circumstances. Some 2-year-olds are also eligible for funding.

You can start claiming free childcare after your child turns 3. The date you can claim will depend on when their birthday is.
