  • free childcare and early education places – following their third birthday, children are entitled to 15 hours’ free early learning a week. From September 2017 this will be increased up to 30 hours find out how the extended childcare offer will work by viewing our flyer listed in green below.
  • eligible two year olds can take up their free childcare the term after their second birthday
  • things to do – leisure activities for the whole family
  • before and after school childcare - you can search our childcare directory.
