Application for Funded Early Learning
Some two year olds may be eligible for free early learning and childcare if the family meet certain criteria.
This funded early learning:
- is for a total of 570 hours per year, usually for 15 hours per week during term time. In some circumstances, it may be possible to make arrangements with your chosen provider to access 11 hours childcare per week across the whole year.
- can be accessed at a Sefton Registered Day Nursery, School Nursery, Playgroup or Childminder of your choice.
- gives every eligible child the opportunity to receive high quality, early education that will help them gain confidence ready for when they start school.
