All three- and four-year-olds and any two-year-olds who meet the eligibility criteria are entitled to a Government funded early education place of 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. There are no circumstances when parents with twins who are both eligible for a funded place would be entitled to receive fewer hours of funded early education.
