Free nursery education for every three and four year old, backed by £340 million was announced today (7 November 2007) by Children’s Minister, Beverley Hughes.

The cash will be used to extend the free early education entitlement for all 3 and 4 year-olds, from 12.5 to 15 hours each week. The extension will be rolled out across the country over the next three years, and all local authorities will offer the extended entitlement by 2010.
