15 hours free education entitlement for 3 & 4 year olds
All families of 3 & 4-year olds can claim free early education of up to 15 hours per week for 38 weeks.
This is paid directly to settings at a rate of ££6.85 per hour.
Working families may also be eligible for an additional 15 hours per week of funded early education. This is called the 30 hours offer.
