Funded early learning and childcare

Funded Early Learning (FEL) is Government funded childcare for all 3 and 4 year olds, and eligible 2 year olds. This can be up to 30 hours a week for some children.

Through play activities children benefit by:

  • learning language
  • developing physical and social skills
  • preparing them for the routine of going to school

Children who use a FEL place show greater levels of achievement in their school years. It also helps parents and carers access employment and training.
