Introduction to funded early learning

Rocket childcare for 3 and 4 year oldsAll three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours a week of funded early years education for 38 weeks of the year. Here, we explain how you work out when your child qualifies for a funded place, where your child can learn and how you go about securing your child's place.

Some working parents and carers of three and four year olds in Derby, may be eligible for up to a further 15 hours funded childcare, in addition to the existing funded 15 hours early education entitlement, if they meet certain criteria.
