Early Education

Give your child a great start with Early Education

Good quality learning helps children to develop new skills, learn to make friends, and begin to get ready for school. Your child will experience exciting new activities like playing with sand, water, messy play and outdoor activities which you may not be able to do at home.

All 3 & 4 year olds are entitled to a free Early Education place

To get a place you need to register your child with an Early Education approved provider. To support you in choosing a suitable provider it is recommended that you visit providers and see if they are right for you.

If your child is 2 years old and you are in receipt of one of the following benefits, then your child is entitled to a Free Early Education place:-

  • Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Employment and Support Allowance
  • Working Tax Credit with a household income of less than £16,190 per year
