Free learning for 2 Year Olds
What is the two year-old free learning offer?
Some two year olds are able to have a free early learning place in a
nursery, children’s centre, playgroup or childminder, for up to 15 hours
a week. Early learning is good for children’s social, physical and mental
development and also helps them to prepare for school – giving your
child the best start in life.
How do I know if my child can have a free place?
If you receive certain benefits or support payments, the Government and
Haringey Council will pay for your child to have a free place for up to 15
hours a week.
For more information call in at the Welbourne Children’s Centre
