Free childcare for two year olds

Birmingham City Council offers an early education entitlement for two year old children for the least advantaged families in the city.


Eligible two year olds will be entitled for up to 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year, following the school term after their second birthday.

This must be taken over a minimum of two days from a childcare provider that is approved to provide the early education entitlement for two year olds. The childcare provider must also be registered with Ofsted.


To be eligible families will need to access certain benefits or the children are looked after by the local authority (please refer to the attachment  'Which two year old children are eligible?'). In Birmingham, there is a further criterion (only agreed until the end of March 2015) which is aimed at supporting children with additional needs, such as those with special educational needs, Family CAF or subject to a child protection plan. You will need to provide evidence to confirm eligibility.
