Some 2-year-olds are eligible for 570 hours of free childcare per year. That's 15 hours of free childcare per week when taken term time only (i.e. over 38 weeks of the year), or you may choose to 'stretch' your hours by taking less hours over more weeks (e.g. 11 hours per week over 51 weeks).
You can find out more about 2-year-old funding and view the eligibility criteria on gov.uk.
You can apply for 2-year-old funding online - you will receive an immediate response. You will need your national insurance number, plus evidence to support your application.
