Three and four year olds can get their 15 hours of weekly free early year’s education at these providers.
• Day Nurseries: Often based in workplaces and run by businesses or voluntary groups providing care and learning activities for children from birth to five years old.
• Childminders: Look after children under 12 in the childminder’s own home. They can look after up to six children under eight years old, although no more than three of them must be under the age of five.
• Nannies and home-based carers: Provide care for children in your home and can look after children of any age.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework that sets the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

Free full time education is compulsory for all children aged 5 to 16, this can be provided by state schools, independent schools, or homeschooling.. Children's education in England is normally divided into two separate stages. They begin with primary education at the age of five and this usually lasts until they are eleven. Then they move to secondary school, there they stay until they reach sixteen, seventeen or eighteen years of age. Some schools may include several education phases in one setting e.g pupils with special needs aged 0 -18yrs.
