Free Entitlement

Little Miracles offers a limited number of places for children on Free Early Education Places. Please check with the nursery for current availability.

2 year old Free Early Education Entitlement

Some two year olds may be entitled to a free early education place. To find our if you are eligible, please head to myearlylearning.co.uk.

If you are entitled the system will produce a reference number for you. You will need to provide the nursery with that reference number prior to starting at the setting. Children are entitled to take up their place from the day after their second birthday.

You can currently take up your child’s funded place in the following ways (subject to availability):.

  1. Term-time Only
    Your child can join the nursery for their funded sessions during term-times. We follow the Waltham Forest Term Dates. In this case you would be able to use your child’s 15 hours to book 3 sessions at the nursery (8-1pm or 1-6pm).
  2. All year round
    If you are working and you require your child to attend all year round this is possible. The funding will be deducted from your full fees. If you wish to just take up the funded hours you may book 2 sessions per week at the nursery (8-1pm or 1-6pm).
