Free Early Learning for Two Year Olds

Wheely Tots is supporting the Mayor of London’s Early Years Campaign.

Lots of children in Haringey are eligible for a free early learning place in a nursery, children’s centre, playgroup or childminder, for up to 15 hours a week. Early learning is good for children’s social, physical and mental development and also helps them to prepare for school – giving your child the best start in life.

Find out if your child is eligible.
