Free childcare to help more families

I am delighted that as of last September, the Government has increased the free entitlement of childcare to 15 hours per week for all three to four year olds.  This is being extended so that 140,000 two year olds from the most disadvantaged backgrounds will have free childcare by 2013-14.

It is vital that we give children the very best start in life and this provision of extra help will do just that.  The new arrangements will mean that parents can balance their work and home life while their children are being looked after.
