Free Early Education
30 Hours Free Early Education (F.E.E)
Does Early Learners Nurseries offer 30 hours free childcare?
We do! We spread the 1,140 free hours over 12 months (instead of 38 weeks), to help spread the savings throughout the year. This means that if your child attends nursery during half terms and holidays, you’ll benefit from free childcare every week – not just during term-time.
How do I know if I am entitled
to 30 hours free childcare?
In order to receive 30 hours free childcare, you’ll need to be able to answer ‘Yes’ to the following questions:
Will my child be aged 3 or 4 when the scheme starts?
Are both parent/carers working (or am I as a sole parent/carer, working)?
Does each parent/carer earn (on average) the equivalent of 16 hours a week at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage?
Does each parent/carer have an annual income of less than £100,000?
Do I live in England?
How it works: Parents will apply online and will be given a unique code; they must give this code to their provider, along with their national insurance number and child’s date of birth, so that the provider can confirm with their local authority or a provider portal that it is a valid code. If they are eligible, they will receive a 30 hours eligibility code. Parents will then have the choice to select the options available from the nursery. Choose your options below and contact your local nursery for availability. Apply early to avoid disappointment.
