Government Funding Options


All 3 to 4 year-olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year.

However there are also some other schemes that provide further funding alongside the government funded hours, these are the 24U scheme (for children aged 2) and Government funded 30 hours (15 hour top up for 3-4 year-olds).
