There are now over 1,000 two year olds taking up free childcare and early education in Cambridgeshire, with more families set to receive a letter to confirming their child’s eligibility this winter.

The national scheme was extended to 40 per cent of families with two-year-olds in September this year, and includes children from families on low incomes, those who have been adopted, and those with complex special educational needs and/or disability now being eligible.

Early education for these two-year-olds supports them to achieve in the future by preparing them for the school environment and helping them to start formal education on an equal footing with their peers.

If you think your child may be eligible but you have not received a letter you can apply online to Cambridgeshire County Council or contact a Cambridgeshire Children’s Centre.
