We will be spending around £6 billion on childcare support in 2019-20 – a record amount. That will include funding for our early education entitlements. For 2019-20, current allocations for 2, 3 and 4-year-olds are £2.75 billion.

The allocation tables can be found here:

Spending decisions beyond 2019-20 will be a matter for the Spending Review.
