Maintained Nursery Schools (MNS) make a valuable contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. They also experience costs over and above those of other early years providers. That is why we are providing local authorities with around £60 million of supplementary funding to enable them to protect MNS funding at least until the period of 2019 to 2020. It is for local authorities to determine how much funding is received by each MNS.

All early years funding after the period of 2019 to 2020 will be determined by the next Spending Review.
