If you meet the criteria and are entitled to this offer you will be able to choose from a list of registered childcare providers who offer funded places for 2 year olds. Your child will be entitled to a place for 570 hours per year. This can be taken as up to 15 hours per week for example for 38 weeks a year or it can be spread over more weeks by taking less hours per week, if your provider can offer this and if they are open year round.

Free Healthy Start Vitamins

Growing children, especially those who don't eat a varied diet, sometimes don't get enough vitamins A and C. It's also difficult to get enough vitamin D through food alone. This is why the Department of Health recommends that all children from six months to five years old are given supplements, in the form of vitamin drops, which contain vitamins A, C and D.
