Free Early Education Entitlement

Take-up of Free Early Education Entitlements

NatCen Social Research has been commissioned to carry out research for the Department for Education about take-up of the free early education entitlements for disadvantaged 2 year olds, and the universal 15 hours entitlement for 3 and 4 year olds.

Specifically, we are trying to understand reasons for variation in take-up of the entitlements in different parts of the country.

The study aims to generate learning and evidence about:

  • Lower and declining take-up in London
  • Whether factors affecting take-up in London affect other areas in England
  • Actions taken by providers and Local Authorities to improve take-up
  • Any impact of the introduction of the 30 hours offer for working parents on the universal entitlements
