Are you eligible for free childcare for your 2 year old?

Note: We are aware of an issue currently affecting the Funded Early Learning checker. We are working to fix this as soon as possible. Alternatively you can contact a daycare provider directly who will be able to complete a 2 year old eligibility check on your behalf.

Many children aged two can have 15 hours free early learning a week at a day nursery, playgroup or with a childminder. Early Learning in a childcare setting helps children with their development and to gain confidence, ready for when they start school.  Find out if you are eligible.
