2gether – free early learning and childcare for more Devon 2 year-olds
Over 2600 2 year-olds in Devon are now entitled to up to 15 hours of free early learning and childcare per week.
That is roughly 35% of the County’s 2 year- old children who can benefit from the opportunity to make new friends, learn through play and have lots of fun at one of around 460 of our high quality specially approved childcare settings. Those childcare providers include day nurseries, pre-schools, child-minders and school nurseries.
More information for parents and carers about the eligibility criteria and how to apply, or you can speak to your local children’s centre, childcare provider or telephone DISC Devon’s family information service on 0345 155 1013.
