Early years funding supports the national scheme administered by local authorities to offer free early learning and childcare places to all children aged 3 and 4 and some 2 year olds meeting certain criteria. This includes the extended entitlement for working parents (processed by HMRC) and foster carers (processed by the Local Authority).
To find out more about the legal framework and principles go to the Early Years Funding Code of Practice for Local Authorities.
