£4.30 funding rate for childcare places

This will form part of a new early years national funding formula that will allocate funding to local authorities for the existing 15-hour entitlement for all three- and four-year-olds, as well as the additional 15 hours for three- and four-year-old children of eligible working parents which is due to come into effect from September 2017.

The government said the changes will mean national average funding rates increase from £4.56 to £4.94 for three- and four-year-olds.

80% of LAs will see increases.

There will also be increased support for children with disabilities through the introduction of a Disability Access Fund, which will provide £615 per year for every eligible child.
