The government has made clear its intention to roll out the extended free childcare entitlement in certain areas from September 2016 in advance of implementation from 2017.

The government is currently considering where early implementation of the extended entitlement should take place, including the number of areas and the locations to ensure geographic balance. The areas will test out the important operational details for delivering the extended entitlement and provide a source of intelligence to support the government in refining the systems to deliver the entitlement. We will announce further details in the autumn.
