The Government is providing approximately £60 million in supplementary funding for Maintained Nursery Schools this year (2020-21), and we are re-confirming that funding, nationally, in 2021-22.

This is on top of the £44 million the Government is providing for early years education in 2021-22 to increase the hourly rate paid to childcare providers for the government’s free hours offers. Prior to this, SR19 confirmed an additional £66 million increase to EY funding.
