Free Early Education for 2-Year-Olds

Two-year-old children who live in Merton can benefit from a new scheme which offers up to 15 hours a week of free early education and childcare at a nursery, playgroup or with a childminder.

This funding is available for children whose parents are receiving benefits such as income support and income-based Job Seekers Allowance.

To find out if your child is eligible, please contact your local children’s centre where staff will be happy to help you.
